Default Are muscles supposed to twitch?

Any runners, joggers, cyclists in here?

Do your legs twitch after a workout?

I've been running about 12 miles a week getting in shape for academy. 4 miles on Mon. Wed. and Fri.
After the workout, my legs aren't really sore, but they'll twitch for a good 5-10 minutes. Is that normal?

In exchange for advice, JB.

You should be giving me a BJ for the advice, but I'll settle..


Generally, a twitching of muscles can be caused by a few things.. Start out with this.. How is your diet?? Do you eat fruits and vegetables that are higher in Potassium?? If not, start there..


Do you stretch properly before and after your runs, and on your off days?? If not, start there.. Each muscle group should be stretched fron 15-30 seconds each, no bouncing, and no pain, just stretching..


If you're still having issues, then you will want to go see a doctor, as that could be a sign of nerve damage.. Although unlikely, as I'm willing to bet you're a combination of dehydrated, and malnurished with regards to vitamin intake..

That could explain it. I don't eat a lot of fruit, nor stretch very much. My diet is mostly protein; nuts, chicken, beef, milk, eggs, etc. Might be getting scurvy from that

In exchange for good advice...More JB.

There is a literal difference between what people generally refer to as a muscle spasm, versus a muscle twitch.. A muscle spasm is an involuntary, sudden contraction of a muscle group, in which there is no immediate alleviation of the contraction.. Usually, it causes significant discomfort to the surrounding muscle groups, as well as creating a serious "knot," in the muscle.. Heat and stretching help alleviate this, but so do normal body weight exercises that incorporate full range of motion, like squats if done correctly, push-ups and even pull-ups..


It's weird though, as no doctor or research has been able to definitively determine that stretching can prevent injury, studies show that stretching can lessen the severity of the injury incurred, or at a minimum, increase your range of motion.. Studies have also shown that stretching increases vascular function, as well as over all muscle growth and physique.. Plus, you don't want to get bone spurs, which is basically when the tendon is so tight, it fractures the bone around the attachment area..


MC: Take some multivitamins if you don't eat a lot of fruit.. Although it'll help, you also need to make sure you have more fibre in your diet, since that helps your digestive system break down proteins more efficiently.. They also help make your farts stink, and dumps more often..

I get those every now and then. Like there will be a muscle in my arm that just kind of twitches, but every time I look at it, it stops, obviously from the movement. So I'll look at it and wait like a ninja, and then it starts again. Looks like an alien trying to get out. Then I laugh and it sees me looking at it and stops.
