View Full Version : Cramping on ellipticals?

Does anyone else have the problem with calf muscles are so tight that they pull within a few minutes? I have really bad problems with charlie horses in my legs. I have had them since I was probably 13 or 14. I'm 23 and cannot seem to find a solution. I've tried potassium and it doesn't seem to work. Is it just me or do other people have this problem? Maybe ellipticals just aren't for me?:?:

How is your posture on the elliptical? If I lean forward at all my feet go to sleep and I start to get leg cramps.
