I don't understand this post -- exercise creates muscle cramping, it doesn't decrease it, as it is the exertion that causes the stress. Static stretching feels good, but there's little evidence to support it having much utility. Now, I don't necessarily accept this as fact, evidence is often misleading. There is a reason people have always stretched and it's hard to believe they didn't get some benefit from it, but after a lot of years of it I have come to read only studies showing there is no evidence it does much in the way of healing. I'm still for it, but it has to be the right kind. Nutrition does play a very large role in cramping, but that's the electrolytes mostly, and avocados wouldn't be the best food for those. And while it is high in calories, that's not the problem, as calories are not all created equal. Nobody ever got fat eating avocados or salmon. The problem is more that it's saturated fat balanced by a fair amount of antioxidants, but it's likely the benefits of avocados are highly exaggerated as part of an advertising campaign to sell more of them. We've seen the same thing happen with coconut products, another high saturated fat food that is relatively high in antioxidants but so are many foods with less saturated fat, such as leafy green vegetables. Hydration is another factor in preventing cramping. One very large cause of cramping in our society today are the medications we are all taking -- many of them cause muscle tension and cramping. But again, exercise is great for many things, but the more you exercise, the more you are prone to overdoing it, which can cause cramping. Certain injuries also cause cramping by pinching nerves, such as hip problems and neck problems. But here's the main thing -- if you do exercise you will need to do more to prevent cramping, not less. The main nutrients thought to ease cramping are magnesium and potassium. Leafy green veggies are high in magnesium, and bananas are high in potassium, just to name some foods.
