@richard, regarding cramp mate the only tips I can offer would be the following (and these aren't scientifically proven, just what's works for moi):|
- stretch before and after exercise
- warm up, don't go straight into a sprint, and also cool down after exercise
- I always do my cardio first, my muscles feel much weaker after a weight routine, as apposed to feeling tighter after cardio
- Buy some isotonic powder and mix it at the gym, or buy a lucosade sport, these replenish the lost sodium, magnesium, etc
On a different note, I've been having shoulder issues and was finding a lot of the gym equipment painful, so I tried swimming yesterday for the first time since 2001 and fuck me it's exhausting for a weight lifter! Going to keep it up though as I enjoyed it, did 15 lengths and I was knackard, next session I'm going to hit 20.
Hitting the gym later tonight, then off my friends to order some bro'tein wooo!
