Cramps - Gatorade?
I cant take a deep breath, yawn, stretch or hickup right now without feeling like my neck, shoulders or whatever are gonna sieze. I know potasium, water and a multivitamin would help, but i was wondering if anyone drinks Gatorade a lot, and if it helps. It has potasium, sodium and a few other things in it that are recommended for cramping... anyone have success with this?

drinking too much gatorade will actually dehydrate you. mix half water half gatorade. potassium has always worked the best for me.

Gatorade really doesnt have much potassium in it only 30mg in a 20ounch bottle
I drink water all day and gatorade while working out.......... I eat potassium tablets like candy (j/k) when on clen I also take 4-5k mg of taurine

I say 3grams of taurine, a potassium - magnesium combo, as well as some malic acid. This wham bam combo will help you alot.

I used to drink alot of gatorade and powerade for cramps, but I got a nice amount of fat from doing it for about a year.
*But for your question, yes, it defineitly helped with my cramps.

From an electrolyte point of view, V8 is much better than Gatorade - it's got a lot more potassium in it. But it's a lot harder to stomach after a tough bout of cardio.
I usually gulp down teh V8 and then have a chaser of something tastier.

I cannot find any kind of potassium tablets at any pharmacies or drugstores. Any ideas?

v8 after a work out...yuck man - i def understand its nutritious values but that would make me vomit - kinda like u pointed out also
gatorade makes me so damn bloated its sick. i def do like a couple people said and mix a small size bottle with a gallon of water and suck that down

Thnx for the input bros... my 710ml bottle of gatorade has 80mg of potasium... im guessing the sodium is what dehydrates you and the sugar puts on the pounds...
