Does anyone else get cramps in their calves when they squat? I squat narrow, high-bar in Olympic shoes. Sometimes the cramps get so bad I can barely walk after squatting. I foam-roll my outer calves which is excruciatingly painful, but then it goes away and everything is fine.
Sounds like ankle mobility could be the culprit here.
I think thats a fairly common thing for squatting that way, and I would have to agree with the ankle mobility part.
