My calves have been cramping near the end of my track workouts (sometimes in the middle of the workout too). My training partners & I suspected that the culprit is not being hydrated enough.
Let me say that I am not a Gatorade drinker, because Gatorade has sugar in it. Now I know there is a new Gatorade out without sugar, but that might be for another review.
I started hearing about how Coconut Water has way more potassium than bananas, and more than sports drinks. Since coconut water is also “natural”, I decided to give Vita Coco 100% Pure Coconut Water a try.
Vita Coco comes in several flavors. I had the Peach & Mango flavor.
Not only did it taste good, but it did not disappoint on the hydration aspect. I drank some during my 10x 100 Meter workout. In a typical workout, I would start cramping around the 6th 100 Meter. But that didn’t happen this time!
