Baseball Leg Cramps - The Difference Between Winning & Losing

Leg Cramps & Baseball

We keep stating it over and over – that preventing leg cramps can be the difference between winning and losing for professional teams and individuals.

This article shows what happens when leg cramps reduce the performance of just one player . . . and it can be prevented – easily!

In any sporting event where you have demands on energy reserves over a period of several hours, your chances of suffering leg cramps, calf cramps or any type of muscle cramps can go sky high.

And cramps can lead to injury, meaning time out of the game – and no athlete or team wants or needs this.

In Ultimate Cramp Busting Guide we spend several chapters on nutrition and hydration and these are two areas I know many professional teams can improve on.

Good nutrition in the lead up to any game, monitoring what players consume before, during and after training and having a hydration and nutrition plan for a long game will mean the difference between suffering a leg cramp or being able to play the entire game.

Next is flexibility – and with just an extra 10 minutes of flexibility exercises before, during and after training, the muscles get more efficient at moving blood and your chances of injury are reduced.

It’s all in the Guide - you just have to decide how important it is to win and keep your muscles cramp-free.
