I workout every morning for approximately sixty minutes.
My workouts are extremely important to me. I am determined to maintain my proper weight and peak strength, stamina and flexibility. As I’ve grown older, I’ve needed to elevate the intensity of exercise. I’ve gotten a little obsessed with jumping rope. I invested into a system that includes ropes of different weights and an app on my phone that tracks my workouts and calories burned. I jump rope nearly every single day and sometimes for the entire training session. It’s hard on my legs. Even if I don’t jump rope, I cycle, run and complete sets of lunges, squats and burpees. Because of the stress on my legs, I’ve had some problems with muscle cramps. When I go to bed at night, my calves cramp. The pain is excruciating. I’ve read up on the issue and have found that drinking more water and stretching the muscles can help. The best remedy is cannabis. CBD is one of the natural compounds found in the cannabis plant. It is non-intoxicating and avoids all of the harmful side-effects of prescription drugs. CBD interacts with receptors in the body and mind and works as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. Fortunately, recreational cannabis is legal where I live. I’m able to shop at the local dispensary for CBD products. They offer a wide range of options from CBD isolate that contains no THC to full-spectrum options that includes the benefits of THC, terpenes, flavonoids and other cannabis plant compounds. I buy cannabis ointments and tinctures which have proven very helpful in alleviating the leg cramps.
