Style: Sandbagged BJJ white belt
I've always gotten cramps from time to time in my calves when doing triangles and similar moves. However, lately I've been experiencing some pretty severe pain when simply using these mucles. Doing the simple stand up guard break in BJJ causes severe pain, which is worse in my right calf than in my left, most likely because I primarily use that leg to stand up and do triangles.
It's not so bad yet that I want to see a doctor, but now that I'm starting a new job that is in an office that has a gym in the building, I was thinking about doing various calf muscle strengthening exercises. Is this a good idea, or does anyone have any other tips?
I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
"Step away," I hissed.

I yawned earlier and had a cramp in that spot under the chin. Not the first time that's happened to me. WTF is up with that wacky ****?

Most muscle cramps are due to one of the following:
2)Local Calcium depletion in the muscle
4)Chronically shortened musculature

The same has happened to me on ocassion. Just thought I'd tell you - it doesn't seems to be anything exceptional.
I haven't trained my calves for a long time, and I just hope that things will get better as I go on training BJJ.

Potassium can help against cramping. Bannanas have a lot of potassium, so that's worth a shot.

On the subject of cramps ;
Anyone else like me who has never in their whole life had cramp?
I keep wondering why.

If you are taking creatine monohydrate cramp can be a sideeffect of it
