EQUIPMENT NEEDED....SEATED CALF MACHINE
Calf cramps can be exceedingly painful, and everyone has experienced this pain at least once in their life.
The most agonizing pain comes at some point during your sleep, but painful cramp pain can also occur during
athletic training. They can instantly halt whatever it was you were doing.
What really goes on when a calf cramp comes on, which can take only a few seconds from painless to horribly painful? There are actually several causes of calf cramps.
Dehydration is one of them. This doesn't mean gasping for water as though you've been wandering in a 100-degree desert for days. You can be dehydrated and not even feel thirsty.
To prevent this, make a point of drinking six to eight glasses of water every day, whether or not you are thirsty for it. You don't have to drink a whole glass at once. You can sip throughout your waking moments. Lack of hydration can speed up the calf (and stomach) cramping process.
