Nutrition and Muscle Cramps – What does the science say? | | Endurance Sports Nutrition |

Personally, I've always maintained the belief that cramping is most often caused by extending yourself beyond your fitness abilities (but I have no scientific proof of that). In this post, Alan McCubbin from Next Level Nutrition tells us what the research says about cramping.
