Most of us devoted to regular #exercise experience leg cramps at one time or another. The most annoying ones come in the middle of the night after a day of heavy workouts. The widely quoted remedy is "eat a banana" for its potassium "punch". But did you know that the leading cause of muscle cramps is dehydration, and that a banana is way down the list of foods high in potassium?
Potassium is found in abundance in a huge number of common foods: peaches, lima beans, pears, potatos, spinach, peas, watermelon to name a few are ALL better sources for potassium than bananas!
So if you are a #TRX or #pilatesreformer aficionado, investigate some of these other healthy foods to prevent muscle cramps.
