only sometimes near the end of rolling, if i'm really clamping down. but yeah, it happens
used to.. seems like it was a potassium deficiency in my case.
eat a couple of bananas every day now and it hasnt happened since.
youre doing it wrong
that would suck cause you'd have to released the hold
My pectineus muscles are sore after i hold someone for too long in a triangle
If you hold any position for too long you will cramp up, its basic anatomy. This is especially true when you are squeezing your knees together, it sucks but it happens. All I can suggest to counter this is to strengthen the muscles in question and stretch them, however at the end of a huge night at training sometimes all that won't be enough to save you from cramping up.
Oh and eating bananas helps
unless it's chronic i wouldn't worry about it. warm up, stretch, eat a banana
used to happen.. not so much anymore. if i dont have it i usually just let go
all the time. Drives me crazy. I eat bannanas sometimes, I hear coconut milk is a great solution... Theres a brazilian store right around my corner (lucky me) and I plan to go there soon to get some.
Buy potassium vitamins and take one before you train. I got 500 of them for 10 bucks at ralphs
do you notice a difference when taking them? I cramp like crazy during training. I eat a banana every day but it doesn't seem like it's helping
Ya I think you get a lot more potassium from a vitamin than just 1 banana. I used to get really bad cramps and would put bananas in shakes but it never did anything. Instead I started taking the vitamins 20 or 30 minutes (maybe longer) before training
Nobody survives my triangle for more than 10 seconds so it doesnt matter
But in all seriousness, its not a tournament and if im out of position or the guy is defending well im just going to transition to something else.
