What Exactly Are Brain Cramps?

Eerybody talks about them and plenty of athletes and sports men and women get them - brain cramps!

It's that time when people just do the dumbest things imagineable - it could be dropping a ball when you're about to score a try, missing a kick at goal when you're right in front and there's no defenders, miss-hitting a 'winner' . . . and the list goes on.

Brain cramps generally occur when players are fatigued to the point that thy can't think straight and even doing something that's so obvious to us spectators becomes difficult.

The reasons for fatigue are simple - not enough energy, not enough fluid or a combination of both.

If you're suffering muscle cramps, leg cramps etc and don't do something about it, then brain cramps are sure to follow.

They appear in the form of poor decision making, fatigue, poor coordination, lack of care in performance and to fix them is quite simple.

A sports drink with a 4-6% carbohydrate concentration should fix those brain cramps in about 20 to 30 minutes.

Of course the key is in preventing them in the first place . . . and that's where the Ultimate Cramp Busting Guide will save you from either looking a complete idiot, hurting yourself or both.

With comprehensive plans for training, nutrition, hydration, boosting energy levels and much more, it's the book that you can't afford to do without - especially if you value your performance.
