How can I prevent muscle cramping after exercising?

Water, Potassium and Exercise

A common water health myth is that drinking water before exercise will cause cramps. This is not true. In fact, drinking water before, during and after exercise can greatly enhance your performance. After your workout, use your glass of water to wash down some potassium. Potassium, found in bananas and other foods, promotes fluid and electrolyte balance and can help keep your post-exercise muscles from cramping.
