    Ever since ive been a young teen after excessive excersize ~90mins+ (running, soccer, biking, swimming) ive experienced harsh pains in my calfs. Always thought it was due to deyhyrdation.

    Just yesterday i went biking and after ~20miles my calf cramps up to the point i have to stop because of severe pain. I had been well hyrdated and had a banana b4 the ride.

    Now almost 36 hrs later my muscles in my calf are still soar and painful. Whats causing this problem in my calfs?

    might need to stretch more... get a good warmup going, enough for a light sweat and get a good deep stretch before your start working out.

    stretch after, too

    Ok, fine. Not everyone. Most people at some point in their life will get bad cramps in their calves. Not neccessarily frequently, but it happens. You've never had that happen?

    No that doesn't happen to me. But what does happen to me is my arm(s) will fall completely asleep and I feel like Ace Ventura running from the tribe.
