    No. You need to be jumping. That is the key.


    6 months and pretty strenuous. Timed jump rope,sometimes 3-400. Sometimes 80 24 inch box jumps. Stacked on top of lifts where you jump to get the weight up into a clean or jerk position.

    I went from being scared of cramping every time I exercised to be able to play tennis in 100 degree weather for 2 hours with no cramps.

    Not saying ill never cramp again, but this has definitely made a dramatic difference.

    Chicken broth is used in chicken soup. Just add noodles, carrots, and celery. Voila!

    I love to eat pickles. I'll will try to make my own pickles. Can I use other things besides cucumbers? I have some squash. I'm gonna put a cucumber in the empty pickle juice jar and see what happens tonite.

    Interesting. Does preventative ingestion of pickle juice and mustard help? I had an extra dosage of both right now. Hot dog with a side of ketchup, mustard, and a big slice of pickle! :twisted:

    Yes, I do. I glanced through one long article and the only cure it has is to chose different parents next time. (My mum also has the cramp).

    I'll do some more reading, but do you know what to do to cure it. I have no other pains, esp in the foot or leg. I run regularly and have no issues. It's just this one cramp that happens in the morning.

    Is there a cure ?

    I've been wanting to start the skipping rope for some time (I heard it's good for building the calf muscle). I do calf presses on the leg press machine once a week. I already have decent calves with some definition and separation, and wanted to improve that.


    (I've been wanting to start a thread on leg exercises for a month, i guess this will give me the impetus to do so).

    Did you follow a plan for it, i.e., could you link me it?
