well i guess i have to reply.

 

ive done about 12 races so far since the beginning of march. Most of it being collegiate racing. Ive had a few top ten finishes 6th being my best finish so far this year. But the collegiate season is over and it's time to race with the new team... Team Snow Valley. My bike is suppose to be ready in the next few weeks. pictures will be posted as soon as i get those. it's going to be along summer.. on and my girlfriend is moving in with me for the summer so that should be intressed... She's going to get a lot of "not tonight i have to ride in the morning" hahah but it should be a good experience...first time living with a girl. but training is going well

 

joker i know how it feels when the calf cramp up... i got that a lot last season.. i have no idea why it happens or how to cure it.. but i think it's either nutrition or training... it's like i can feel them tingling and then i know when the tempo is brought up i wont have anything in me to respond...

 

 

any who keep working on the spandex tan.... sooo hot

What to do What should you do if you get a cramp? Popular remedies include massage, stretching, acupressure (relaxing the affected muscle by applying pressure to it), and giving yourself a hard pinch squarely on the upper lip. What about nutritional remedies? Previous theories have suggested cramping is related to fluid loss and electrolyte imbalance. These theories do not always hold true. (For example, musicians, who do not get sweaty, often complain of muscle cramps.) Yet, if you are plagued by cramps, you should at least rule out any possible factor that might contribute to getting them. Here are a few food tips to help you rule out theoretical nutritional causes.

 

Theory #1. Lack of water. Cramps often occur when an athlete is dehydrated. (But even athletes who are well hydrated get cramps.) To reduce the risk of dehydration-associated cramps, simply drink more than enough fluids before, during, and after you exercise. On a daily basis, drink enough fluids so you have to urinate every two to four hours. Your urine should be light colored and copious. During extended exercise, drink as much as tolerated, optimally 8 ounces every 15-20 minutes.

 

Theory #2. Lack of calcium. Calcium plays an essential role in muscle contractions. Anecdotal stories suggest that athletes who eliminate calcium-rich dairy products can become plagued by muscle cramps. For example, a ballet dancer who added yogurt and skim milk back into her diet reports her cramps disappeared. A mountaineer resolved his muscle cramps by taking calcium-rich Tums. Exercise scientists question the validity of these anecdotes, believing a calcium imbalance is unlikely to be the cause of muscle cramps. After all, the bones are a calcium reservoir and can supply the body what's needed for proper muscle contractions. Never-the-less, to rule-out any possible link between a calcium-poor diet and muscle cramps, I recommend that athletes plagued by cramps consume calcium-rich foods at least twice a day, such as low fat milk on cereal and a yogurt for a snack. This good nutritional practice certainly won't hurt them, and may possibly help.

 

Theory #3. Lack of sodium. Many health-conscious athletes restrict their salt intake on a daily basis, believing this will help prevent blood pressure problems. However, if these athletes are losing a significant amount of sodium through sweat, they may be putting themselves at risk for developing a sodium imbalance that could contribute to cramps. This situation is most likely to occur in extreme sports such as an Ironman triathlon or 100-mile trail run, particularly if the athletes have consumed only plain water during the event, no sodium-containing food or beverage.

 

Theory #4. Lack of potassium. Athletes who sweat heavily may lose some potassium, but they are unlikely to become potassium depleted. And if they did, the whole body would be affected--not just one muscle. Never-the-less, eating more potassium-rich fruits and vegetables will hurt no one.

 

Theory #5. Lack of pickle juice. Some football players and athletic trainers swear two ounces of pickle juice taken ten minutes before exercise prevents cramps. The reasons are unknown and untested, but there's no harm in trying...! The above suggestions are only suggestions, not proven solutions. But you might want to experiment with these dietary tips if you repeatedly suffer from muscle cramps. Adding extra fluids, low fat dairy products, a sprinkling of salt, extra fruits and vegetables, and even some pickle juice certainly won't harm you and may possibly resolve the worrisome problem. I also recommend you consult with a physical therapist, athletic trainer or coach regarding proper stretching and training techniques. Nutrition may play no role at all.

You're probably ready for one of these... you don't even need a license.

bringing this one back from the dead.

 

been riding a bunch in between working all the time.

 

 

so i finally got my seatpost unseized. they didn't have to cut it out, but i lost a relatively new thomson seatpost in the struggle. managed to come up on a record titanium to take it's place for a relatively good price. looking forward to building my bike back up this weekend. i haven't had it for 2 months so it'll be like riding a brand new bike.

I havent gotten to ride in over 2 weeks now, closer to 3 probably. School is done in 2 weeks though, and I have a week of vacation right then also, paid vacation so it'll be like getting paid to ride.

 

Last I rode, I went to this skatepark in the middle of nowhere, like basically all surrounded by fields..it was a lot of fun..had a bbq, smoked blunts, drank beers and rode all day there.

 

resta the bike heads..where you at?

Basically I told the freakishly tall bike sales man I'm looking for something that I can constantly beat the fuck out of and have it still be relyable.

 

He said "your looking for a timex, ha ha ha.... you know the watch... Takes a lickin' an..."

 

I intrupt "yeah got it. While durablity is important, so the price. I need it to be cheap

enough that if I must ditch it I won't be too upset."

 

Him "uh..." one eye brow up the other down, "yeah, there this one its it only comes in pimp ride blue."

 

me "that works, I'm stripping the letters and color anyways so I won't get clubbed"

i just painted my DK Fury a nice traffic cone orange with black parts. im thinkin about going back to running 4pegs instead of the 2 i have now because i rarely go out and do any tricks anymore after i snapped my thumb in half twice, just little icepicks on whatever little subs or banks i come across. i found these little blacklight nipple cap lights so the orange kinda glows when i ride at nite which looks tight. i'l post a pic later.

seized seat post over here....again...i don't know why i haven't learned this lesson yet.

 

i'm on the back up ride till i can get it sorted out. been soaking for the last week.

 

seized posts are a bummer. try this, i know you have soaked it, use triflow if you have it. get a hair dryer, set it at high and blow dry the seat tube, heat expands metal, try to keep the actual seat post cool, ie:wrap it in a cold damp cloth. when the seat tube is warm try to twist the seat post, repeat till it gives. also, remove your bottom bracket, and drip try flow into the seat tube and set bike upside down. flood the seat tube if you can, just let it soak over night. the hair dryer works pretty well if your patient. good luck

I am selling my BMX bike, it's pretty dang nice, the kind that if you bought it you wouldn't have to get another one for as long as you live. Of course, some people can really beat the shit out of their bikes, but this one can hold up to alot.

 

It's a 21" Standard TRLS250, if you're interested or know someone that is, PM Dirty_habiT. It's going on ebay soon so I just wanted to maybe give you all a chance to get it first.
