    I have heard both sodium, and potassium. Make sure you are not getting dehydrated as well. Dehydration can lead to cramping/charlie horses as well. LMAO! Hey needmore! Have any Horse Shoes lately??

    Bro, naturally the first thing to do is like these bros said and get your water and electrolyte levels back up. Another good thing to do is hit some taurine - I believe a gram or so really helps with the cramping. Good luck.

    It happens to me from time to time as well. I thought it was from lack of enough hydration.
