Did You Know?

What are heat cramps?

Heat cramps are very painful muscle spasms during or after a strenuous activity such as exercise in hot environments. Cramps are usually caused by increased production of lactic acid after exercise as the muscles use the acid to produce energy (when oxygen is used up). The excess lactate and the hot temperature contribute to the cramps. Lack of fluid and electrolyte replenishment while exercising is also a factor. Be sure to rest and take fluids when performing strenuous activity.
