    Getting bigger/muscle cramping


    The bigger I get the more difficult I find reaching around myself, putting on my belt, scratching my back, trying to reach places I could reach before.... Now I find myself cramping up.... I was reaching over my shoulder to scratch my back. I began to have massive cramping in my shoulder and back muscle.... Anyone else have this problem?..... Maybe I should be stretching more?

    I had the same problem. After awhile it just went away. Kinda like tendonitis and other joint pains. I noticed it the most when I wason the creatine though.

    That got horrible for me on my last cycle of superdrol. I am currently running superdrol for a second time and the cramps are coming back. I dont know how much that you can do for it, although i kind of like the feeling.

    Calcium and magnesium deficiencies lead to muscle cramps. Stimulants, sickness, heavylifting, lack of sleep all deplete cal mag. try taking a generic cal-mag or magnesium alone is usually the bigger culprit. I had devastating leg cramps when i ran, found out it was from my EAS pre-race fuel(caffeine) that was causing it, stopped added calmag and was cramp and ache free after a couple days. try it or see what your local health food store recommends.

    Funny you say that, I'm on week two of an SD cycle. It started about a week ago. It must be the SD sides causing the cramps..... I don't cramp up when I'm working out, only if I'm reaching or twisting.

    Taurine really helps get rid of the muscle cramps from SD. And muscle cramps in general. 3-5grams a day in divided doses. Seems to work best taken on an empty stomach about 30 minutes before a meal.

    Don't forget to stretch every workout if you would like your flexibility to keep up with your size gains PLus it helps to prevent injuries.

    Everyone suggests taurine for the cramps. Honestly, I found it better to eat 2 bananas a day while on SD and this seemed to ease the cramping better than the taurine.
