    It's just a few years since my calves started cramping under hard work. They didn't used to do it
    when I was younger. The annoying part is I get no warning. They don't feel fatigued, they just
    cramp up on me.

    Lately in spinning class, they tend to do it most often when I spin fast (180+ rpm).

    Is this just a banana deficiency? What happens to muscles as we get older that would make my calves
    more prone to cramping?

    I get sometimes rather light cramping in the calves if I exercise without eating too well. Mom
    suggested lack of magnesium I think.
