Poor form, posture and wrong technique while executing an exercise can often result in a feeling of tightness in the muscles, cramps, tension, or stress in the body. While this cannot be classified as a workout injury, your body is indeed in distress on the inside and needs your attention.

Muscle cramps or spasms can occur almost anywhere in the body, but the more common areas include the hamstring, quads and calves. The pain can last up to 10 minutes, and sometimes the muscles can feel sore for almost  24 hours.

Recognised as Exercise-Associated Muscle Cramps (EAMC), they can also be brought on by dehydration, lack of electrolytes—minerals and vitamins—fatigue, no warm up routine, and other neuromuscular causes.

Easy & Effective Remedial Measures To Treat EAMC

On an end note, understand that in order to prevent EAMC, all you need is exercise juice—water. Get your fill of electrolytes through coconut water and load up on bananas, peanut butter, olives, milk, yogurt and nuts to replenish calcium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, sodium in the body.
