Triathletes and Leg Cramps

Triathletes & Leg Cramps: "cramp"

Without doubt, triathletes represent a large percentage of sports men and women who suffer leg cramps.

Generally we find a triathlete is more likely to suffer regular cramps early in their career - particularly when attempting longer events for the first time.

It comes down to experience, training, being in tune with your body in terms of hydration, energy and nutrition and making sure you have a good and regular flexibility program in place.

Perhaps it's focusing on the physical too much that is responsible for weaker performances - sounds cazy, bu from an Eastern Medicine point of view, if you're suffering physical problems such as running cramps, calf and leg cramps etc - then sometimes 'less' is better.

In the Ultimate Cramp Busting Guide we have a chapter on Eastern medicine techniques for dealing with leg and muscle cramps from a 'whole body' point of view and part of that treatment process involves 'backing off' the training to get a better physical result.
