Starting GB I have experienced some cramping while doing exercises that seems to be related to a lack of conditioning -- in my feet while curling my toes during middle split stretches, for instance. As some of the movements are very novel, it seems the muscles respond with cramping and the cramping has diminished as my conditioning has improved. However, I have also had cramping before and after discovering GB which seems more generic, while sleeping or resting for instance. I have read magnesium is a common deficiency that leads to cramping but tried a magnesium citrate/oxide blend of 250mg/day for 8 weeks but still had some cramping while at rest. I have also heard that potassium deficiency is NOT generally a cause of cramping though it is commonly believed to be. Not sure if that is true or not, so wondering if anyone has experience with supplements or other strategies that have successfully reduced or eliminated cramping while at rest?
