Episode 43 – Cramps During Mobility Work

If you’ve dabbled in mobility work, you’ve most likely experienced the infamous muscle spasm/cramp that happens when exploring previously uncharted territory. In this episode, Dr. Jen explains why muscle cramps happen during mobility work (spoiler alert: it’s more than just a lack of potassium that can be solved by eating a banana), what insight that gives us on our mobility journey, and what you should do about it if/when you experience it.

Hi, I'm Dr. Jen Hosler.

I’m a bookworm, science nerd, and coach of all things movement (physical therapist and strength & mobility coach). You can catch me sleeping in & having a slow morning, doing CARs & lifting heavy things, or sipping a glass of wine on my time off.

Through a blend of strength & mobility training, I’ll help you master your movement & build a more resilient body that won’t hold you back from all the activities you love doing.

Monthly 1:1 Coaching

Have a nagging ache, pain, or injury that just hasn’t gone away? Maybe you’ve tried bouts of physical therapy or chiropractic care without much success. Or maybe you’ve done your own research and rehab with the help of social media, but you still aren’t feeling 100%. That’s where I come in – with my personalized asssessment and 1-on-1 programming, I will tailor a plan specific to your individual needs so you can feel better and tackle your goals.

Let's Get Social.
