Sports Features Communications� - Sports Newsfeeds 24/7: "cramp"

If you're an amateur sportsperson and get cramps regularly, take comfort in the fact that seasoned athletes suffer cramps pretty often as well as this article shows!

Cramp pain is often overlooked as a significant factor in preparation for an event when in actual fact cramp pain can mean the difference between a good and bad result.

In training, it's important to simulate race conditions from time to time, practice hydrating, maintain flexibility (yoga routines are useful), and for long events, such as this cross country, work out a good nutrition strategy.

Our preference is sports drinks with a blend of carbohydrate, protein and mineral electrolytes and natural sugars (monosaccharides, polysaccharides & oligosaccharides).

After the event a recovery sports drink along with plenty of water and something as simple as a piece of fruit will start the process of replenishing and repairing muscles for the next event.

Our preferred sports drink is Rebound fx, you can take a look at it here
