I was working my calves for the first time in a very long time and I had very intense cramps whenever I started my repititons. The pain wasnt unbearable but I will not continue working them out because of it.
I had noticed over the years that I get cramps for no reason; my calves will start twitching and the cramp starts. This has been going on for many years but I have not actually worked out my calves during this time.
Is this abnormal? Are my calves just unusally susceptible to cramps? Can I do anything differently to not have cramps? I wasnt doing any high weights so its not like I put too much pressure of them. I put the weight to the lowest setting and I still had intense cramps.
Yes I do stretch before. I can actually get a severe cramp by stimulating them while sitting down; I can cause a cramp on cue and do it however many times I want. Not sure if this is normal but any pressure above the amount caused by walking, I will get a cramp. And its only in my calfs that I can do this.
I am also very hydrated at all times, I always drink alot of water.
