    On average I get about 1.5g/day. Most is from food.

    Any specific reason for taking the potassium like controlling muscle cramps? If so then I'd say eat it like it's candy about 1g/day But if it's just for everday supplementation then I'd suggest maybe 300mg-500mg/day depeding on how much you get from foods. Remember being a bodybuilder our bodies tend to need more vitamins, nutrients, etc etc.. Recommended dosage doesn't really apply to most of us unless it's an actually bodybuilding supp.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention i cramp in my arms(somtimes unbearable after bench day) while on M1T.

    I hear m1t is "dry" and causes joint pain.
    Well it does do that to me.
    Will potassium help this too or is potassium strictly helping muscular cramping.

    It seemed to help me on m1t. I had no cramps, I guess it worked.
