The TriDoc Podcast Ep. 38: Muscle Cramps I/Weber/Motivation in Isolation

Exercise associated muscle cramps are the bane of many athlete's existence and cause so much havoc to even the best laid plans.Despite more than a hundred years of research, the reason for cramping is still hotly debated and not well understood. In part 1 of a 2 part series, I take a look at one of the two most likely underlying causes of cramping; electrolyte imbalances. Jay Weber has a long time association with triathlon as a participant and as the director of operations at Base Performance. But he is also a certified triathlon official and he joins me to talk about that aspect of his life in multi-sport. Finally, Ann Barnes is a multiple Kona qualifier and podium finisher on the big island. She talks to me about her motivation in isolation.
