Why do I get cramping in the arch of my right foot when exercising? (pilates)
There are several reasons you might be experiencing foot cramps while exercising. Here are some ideas and tips: 1. Dehydration can be a cause, so be sure to drink plenty of fluids before, during and after your pilates class. 2. Cramping can also be caused by a lack of potassium or calcium in your system. Foods high in potassium include kiwi fruit and bananas. Foods high in calcium include milk, yogurt, cheese, etc. 3. Stretching can be helpful in preventing cramps. With your foot at 90 degrees to your leg, bend your toes back to stretch the muscles in the arch of the foot. 4. Massage can also help. Use a tennis ball or golf ball and roll your foot, massaging the arch.
