I workout every day and devote the vast amount of the session to high intensity cardio exercise.
I strive to elevate our heart rate, get my lungs working at maximum capacity and generate a nice sweat.
I hope to burn a great deal of calories, improve muscle tone and increase stamina. My workouts are respectfully quite harsh on my legs. I tend to overwork our calf muscles. The joints of our knees, ankles and feet experience a lot of repetitive and tough impact. I like to go for six- to eight-mile runs. I jump rope nearly every day and occasionally for almost the entire minute of the workout. I also include lots of lunges, jumps, jumping jacks, mountain climbers and tuck jumps. I have been having some concerns with muscle cramps in our calves. While the muscles are slightly tight throughout the afternoon, the complication mainly shows up at night. When I head to bed and attempt to sleep, our calves begin to tighten up. The pain makes sleep impossible. I often need to get up and stretch my legs. I apply icy-hot, take ibuprofen and occasionally need to wrap our calves in ice. I’ve done some research and have read that the muscle cramps could be the result of insufficient hydration and/or overworking the muscles. I am now making an effort to drink more water and spending more time on our hot up, cool down and stretching. I am looking for cardio exercises that avoid impact on my joints, such as biking, swimming and water sports. Making these changes has helped but hasn’t eliminated the concerns with muscle cramps entirely.
