Muscle cramp


Muscles cramp for a variety of reasons, but once you have one its hard to get rid of it. make sure that you are stretching properly and working on conditioning. Hydrate during exercise with an electrolyte rich sports drink. Once you have cramp, try stretching it out and massaging the muscle to make it go away.

Yes


Generally stretching a muscle after it is warmed up is helpful for spasm. If it does not quickly resolve see your physician for an underlying or referred problem.

In non-clutched


vehicles operating an accelerator and brake pedal, while requiring some contraction of the quadriceps muscles, requires mush less effort than walking or cycling. If you have had a surgical repair then this question needs to be directed at your doctor and I can't advise.

How can i just tone my thigh muscles and not build it like KK?

Answered by:

Weight and aerobics


Aerobic or cardiovascular exercise will reduce fat, making the underlying muscle more prominent. Weight lifting is also good but for toning it's best to use lighter weights and do more reps as opposed to heavier weights with fewer reps (which is used for adding bulk).

Lots of things


Severe calf pain can be due to intermittant claudication which you must address due to poor circulation. Upper thigh pain can also be due to poor circulation especially if you are a past smoker. Overexercise which causes cramping, and lack of stretching may also be a cause. Arthridities and neuromuscular disorders should also be addressed. I would see your physician for a proper diagnosis

Walk


I assume you don't want to purchase equipment or go to a gym. There are many things that you can do without equipment-and walking is the easiest. It requires no special equipment, and benefits not only your legs, but your heart, lungs and mood as well. Many DVDs have exercises you can follow in your own home. Biking is excellent, too.
