Cramps are something nearly all of us have to deal with from time to time. Coach Hughes provides a detailed look into the causes of cramps, helping us understand and implement prevention techniques, which he covers in-depth. Finally, he provides tips (both on-bike and off-bike, including photos) for breaking and flushing cramps. The article includes helpful nutritional information regarding food sources for minerals your body needs, as well as the mineral content of sports drinks and supplements, which you can use to ensure adequate replenishment of what you lose through sweat. Following Coach Hughes’ recommendations could be the difference between a ride-ending cramp, or another great day on the bike.
Preventing and Treating Cramps is available as part of the Summer Riding Bundle (includes Cycling in the Heat, Parts 1 and 2, and Eating & Drinking Like the Pros).
