    hey guys, i was wondering if you could help me out with a problem.
    i have been taking muai thai for the past four months, but every class my calves tense up to the point where they are rock hard during the warm ups...
    and i pretty much cant do jack shit.
    I was told drink more water- tried that.
    get them massaged- tried that too
    and while i have noticed improvement, i still have that happen to me and its very frustrating.
    I dont know what to do and its hampering my workouts.

    any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    try getting some potassium in you. eat a banana or supplement it daily.

    how many days per week are you working out? I'd give your legs some rest if you are killing them in the gym and then in muay thai all week.

    Ice baths, post workouts, more potassium (potatoes with skins on) more water and light stretching... Start warming up in sweats or tights before you go in to your workouts..

    to go along with the other suggestions, I believe taurine is supposed to help with your problem as well, though you'll have to double-check that
