    The worst I've had were always in my calves. The kind of cramp that tightens up like a rope being twisted for a full minute, the only relief followed by 5 second spasms of pain. Cramps are not fun. I admit the worst I had was because of dehydration, a stupid and avoidable mistake.

    I've yet to cramp up while lifting, but I worry about it sometimes. Anyone have experience with this?

    Yeah it seems like ab cramps are the hardest to recover from because they're in use all the time. Can't stop breathing to rest the muscles.

    Yep. Only race I ever played on WoW... then again I quit after a month. Fuck that game. Tauren are huge though.

    Yeah and you get it in bed unexpectedly, only to freeze up for a few seconds then do it again. Those are actually funny afterwards... like you just got your ass beat by your toe and your scared to move.

    you mean the muscles under the arch ?

    I would purposely squeeze them when i was young so that it would cramp up and then i would try to uncramp them.

    Hamstring cramps = instant weight dumpage on pretty much anything

    Yeah, even small cramps can short out entire muscle groups. The pain is too intense to ignore also, so there's no such thing as 'gutting' a cramp out. I have seen people, including my 40+ dad hike with 60 lbs on our back and he was cramping the entire way but I didn't even know until he told me. :eek3: So maybe he was gutting it out.

    Come to think of it that was the hardest hike I've ever been on and I didn't have a single cramp. But if I lay in bed the wrong way and flex my toe I'm in dangerous territory :rofl: fuck cramps.
