Dr Tim believes that muscle cramps are the consequence of central fatigue, rather than electrolyte disbalance, which is a common misconception. The prevalence of muscles cramping is highest when we are exercising at really high intensities. This is when our body wants a lot, whereas our muscles are not prepared to sustain such a hard effort.
