it is while im training and at home

and its definitly a cramp not soreness

there both the same and i somtimes get one in the hip but it isnt as bad i belive jackolope said it best




But what Jackelope described is not a cramp. If you get a cramp in your leg, you will see your muscle bulge up. Also, your leg will be sore for about a day afterwards. Trust me, I used to get nocturnal calf cramps. They are so painful they will wake you up and your calf looks like there is a golf ball under your skin.

Bona fide cramps are not always a hydration and potassium issue. They can come from a number of sources, including diabetes.

Honestly, if you are getting these things throughout the day, the first place I would look is what you are wearing on your feet. I would go see a foot specialist and assess your degree of pronation. If you have flat feet or a flexible foot (which will over pronate) you will be suceptible to a number of issues ranging from your back to your hips, knees, all the way to your feet. When I started wearing proper footwear (I was normall wearing a standard size 12 shoe, but really I needed an 11.5 4E shoe with moderate support for pronation) for walking and running, my nocturnal cramps went away.

Also, stretch your Achilles tendon a lot. Don't do the lunge and lean stretch, they don't work well and people often cheat. Do a google search on Achilles stretches and find the ones people recommend. There are about 3 or 4 that I can think of.

i could be wrong this is more of an opinion rather then a fact because i'm not sure....

it could be flexibility or you not drinking enough water i think.

Drinking lots of water throughout the day helps out.

i actually have the same problem when im grappling.

i never get cramps ever.

only when i grapple.

its a foot cramp in the arch.usually happens when im locking ina triangle.or am goin to swing my leg over for an armbar.


does the twisting of my hips have anything to do with my foot cramp??
cause when im on my back i am constantly twisting my hips looking for an armbar or triangle

If you are getting a cramp in your foot, it means that certain muscles in your leg are not functioning properly and you are compensating elsewhere to move your leg in a certain way. The cramp is caused when you are doing plantarflexion, but need to bend your toes down to do this movement. You should be able to plantarflex without curling your toes down. If you have to curl your toes down, then you might have a problem with the following muscles


gastrocnemius
soleus
plantaris (only weak participation)
flexor hallucis longus
flexor digitorum longus
tibialis posterior
peronaeus longus
peronaeus brevis
