Causes of Muscle Cramps and How To Get Rid of Them

Potential Causes of Muscle Cramps

What causes muscle cramps and how to get rid of them?

Unfortunately, not too many people can answer this! But we can offer a few insights and theories:

Fatigue

You rarely see cramps at the start of a game or race. However, it is common to see athletes cramp at the end which leads us to believe that fatigue is a likely contributor.

Dehydration & Electrolyte Imbalance

For many years some researchers have long suggested dehydration and electrolyte imbalance (such as decreased salt content) as a cause. But recent reviews have downplayed this theory, as the evidence is mostly observational. This means while there may be an association between dehydration, salt depletion, and cramps, we can’t prove one caused the other.

In these studies, people who were prone to cramps did NOT have differences in hydration or electrolyte content compared to people who were not prone to cramps!

Furthermore, all the muscles in the body would cramp if electrolyte imbalance was implicated. Cramping is usually experienced in actively used muscles.

Salt tablets and magnesium have been commonly used for cramps, but because electrolyte imbalance and dehydration don’t appear to be the cause, their usefulness is debatable.

Other Causes of Muscle Cramps

Other causes of muscle cramps include side effects from some medications, diet or perhaps have a family history of cramping.

Lack of strength and conditioning may also play a role in exercise-related muscle cramps.

How to Get Rid of Muscle Cramps

Science is now proving there is a fast way of getting rid of muscle cramps

The latest science in relation to getting rid of muscle cramps relates more to a neurological connection. Particularly in terms of rapid relief during activity. Studies conducted with professional rugby players have shown that despite hydration, strength, conditioning & nutrition being monitored, cramping can often still occur. Hence the effectiveness of using a product that stimulates a neural response.  Products like CrampFix are able to quickly activate sensory nerves in the mouth, triggering the overactive nerve signals to release the cramp – quickly.

Swallowing and digesting is not required! Cramps disappear just by swirling the liquid around the mouth and discarding it! This is how to get rid of cramps quick enough to stay in the game.

Cyclists commonly suffer muscle cramps.

Calf Cramps While Running “Guaranteed I’ll have CrampFix on me!

Calf cramps while running are a horrendous experience! “If you ever see me on course, guaranteed I’ll have CrampFix on me!

Calf cramps when running

Calf cramps are a horrendous experience! Andrew Chau

“I’m thrilled to have been selected to join the CrampFix team of Ambassadors, and look forward to spreading the word of a cramp free race!

My story with CrampFix started at the Gold Coast Marathon expo, where I dropped by the stand and chatted to Jan about the product. It was a day before the race, so I decided I wouldn’t experiment with anything new.

Needless to say, I cramped really bad the next day, the return to the finish from Runaway Bay was a horrendous experience, dropping over a minute in pace due to crippling cramps in my calves.


I bought my first CrampFix Shot at the City2Surf expo – I didn’t need it for the shorter distance race, but took the opportunity to stock up for the Sydney Marathon. I had a good chat to Jan again, and told him about my Gold Coast experience, the next marathon was not going to be a repeat.

Sydney Marathon came around pretty soon after, and I was ready. I had been training well, had experimented with nutrition and felt prepared – I also had a couple shots of CrampFix, just in case. Those shots were consumed in the back half of the race, they allowed me to power through without debilitating cramps. I finished with a PB time of 2:57:31 joining the sub3 club.


Since Sydney Marathon I haven’t raced without a CrampFix tucked away with my gels. Stromlo lightning 30km – one CrampFix, top 10 finisher, no cramps.

Six Foot Track Marathon – two CrampFix, 4:18:38 finish, no cramps.
If you ever see me on course, guaranteed I’ll have CrampFix on me.

Cheers!

Andrew”

Triathlon Leg Cramps CrampFix “Be it training or racing, I’m happy they work for me!”

If you’re wanting to use CrampFix in your next triathlon but aren’t sure just how to … read this race report by Ironman Triathlete & Ultraman Kristin Trappitt.

“For the Ironman 70.3 Geelong I took an Espresso CrampFix pre swimming as I can get quad and calf cramps during the swim. Not on Sunday thankfully!.

On the ride I had a Raspberry CrampFix at 20km and again at 65km. These help me as I have tight calves and it helps me stay looser into the run.

This was a tough run, especially with the warming conditions. A Lemon CrampFix at the end of Lap 1 of the run and NO CRAMPING issues at all during the day!

I continue to enjoy the benefits of CrampFix with all my extended days. Be it training or racing and I’m happy they work for me”

Leg Cramps In Ironman CrampFix Can Save Your Race

Ironman athletes can suffer terrible leg cramps during racing and training.

“CrampFix really was a lifesaver, you put a hell of a lot of training hours into those types of events as you know, so it was a massive relief to find a product on course that literally fixed the problem in a minute or so, and enabled me to complete the event.

Port Macquarie 70.3 last year was my first long course triathlon. I felt like $1million bucks coming off the bike, and

 

within the first km of the run I was struck with my first EVER leg cramp.

 

I honestly thought my day was over, I had no idea how I would run another 20k.

Then I was lucky enough to find CrampFix at the next aid station, and it literally saved my event.

I went on to achieve my 70.3 goal.

One year later, I am attempting my first Ironman, and

I won’t think of starting without a CrampFix sachet in my belt!”

“I always Keep A CrampFix Sachet or Bottle On Me”

 

The First Time Using CrampFix
by Ash Hunter, Ironman 70.3 Triathlete

Ever since starting triathlon in 2015 I’ve experienced muscle cramps in almost every race, usually on the run and was finding I’d start to cramp on the bike in a half Ironman too.

While walking through the Cairns Ironman Expo in 2017, I came across CrampFix and asked how their product works, what athletes have used it before and what have the athletes said about it. After having a chat to Jan and Michelle, the owners, I decided to buy a couple of bottles. I don’t usually like to try new things on race day but thought I’d just have it there as an “in case of emergency” situation.

I carried a bottle in my bento box on the bike and put the other one in my back race suit pocket when I got into Transition 2 for the run.

I ended up having a mouthful on the bike around the 60km mark when I could feel the very start of a muscle cramp going on. The cramps stayed at bay until 12km on the run when I could feel another one about to start so I had another mouthful and the cramps disappeared again.

CrampFix saved my race and I ended up with a 15 minute personal best time over the Ironman 70.3 distance and 3rd in the Female 25-29 Age Group.

I always keep a CrampFix sachet or bottle on me for training and racing now and haven’t looked back.

Jason is a regular user of CrampFix “(At Kona )I battled an injury all day that slowed me down but I didn’t battle Cramps thanks to CrampFix!”

While in Hawaii still, one week after the Ironman Champs, Jason won his Age Group in a 30k running race!! Amazing achievements!
