SUMMARY
- Doctors suggest that muscle spasms can be caused by exhaustion and an imbalance of electrolytes. The main thing you can do here to prevent this problem is to drink plenty of water.
- Always try to train in air-conditioned gyms, which aren’t that hard to find nowadays. If you prefer to exercise outside in the fresh air, stay far away from roads.
- Start going to the gym more regularly: your brain will get used to the trigger and stop reacting to it. The longer the breaks between your workouts are, the more itching you’ll have.
- Don’t work out at least 2 hours after eating, and exclude fatty foods and anything rich in fiber.
- If you really don’t want a cold tummy, waiting 2 or 3 hours after eating before exercising may help prevent this from happening. Drinking more water during a workout and warming up before it will also have a positive effect on your system.
- If you feel nauseated, take a few sips of water or a sports drink; good hydration is necessary for your system during training. You can even drink some soda, eat candy, or chew on gum to increase the level of glucose in your blood.
- To prevent fainting and possible injuries, we recommend having a seat if you feel unwell or even lying down to ensure the blood flows to your head.
- Usually, swelling in the legs is caused by heat emitted from the muscles, tight shoes, and even nerve inflammation. If it’s because of tight shoes, the answer is obvious: just buy special sports shoes in the correct size.
- Be more careful during your workouts, and don’t overdo it with intense training sessions. Eating more foods rich in vitamin C, like oranges, kiwi, strawberries, tomatoes and papaya, may also be useful.
- If you’re running, take a deep breath, press the painful area, and let it go when you breathe out. This will make the blood leave faster.
- If you’ve noticed that your urine has recently become way darker than it was before, this may have something to do with you working out. Make sure to drink water during training sessions to stay hydrated.
- Drinking a lot of water will also help get the metabolic toxins out of your body as fast as possible. Try different massages; they’re really good at relieving intense muscle soreness.
