Energy drinks are the worst thing you could put in your body. Banana's help but pick up some Sport Legs potassium supplements I'll crank those when I'm going a few days hard and need a boost. Water is key the other thing is know when to quit if you're up there open to close every day of course you're body is going to say fuck you and shut down. I rode 190 days last year but it wasn't open to close every day 4 to 6 hours is a good amount of time.

I like SportLegs too. I don't know if they really work or if they're placebo, but on big days I'll pop three before I head out. Like BA said, water is important so you stay hydrated but if you're simply not in condition then your legs will eventually give out regardless of what products you eat, drink, or do.

great advice energy drinks like monster or red bull are more likely too make you cramp then help. all you need is to strecth hydrate eat bananas consume electrolytes through supps. check out some vids on youtube for stretches. important thing to remember tight supporting muscles will make primary muscles cramp too. stretch out your calves hams glutes quads.

Drink Pickle Juice instead of sports drinks. (no joke)

Eat lots of veggies.

Yuk yuk yuk!

I've read of pickle juice too. It has potassium and sodium, both electrolytes that help stave off muscle cramps.

Here is what I suggest...

Do a couple of big fat gator tails ================================================== ================

If you do too much chowder then hit a J to mellow out.

When you legs hurt too much go see your Dr. and get a script for pain killers. Take pain killer, drink whiskey, gator tail, J > repeat.
