Angel Bermudez, from California, has his right leg propped up on the dashboard of a car, and one can see the muscles cramping and uncramping for over a minute. The gruesome pain of the cramps is audible in his voice as he says, “this is what a cramp looks like”. So far his video has over 350,000 shares.
“That has been the most disturbing thing I have ever seen in my whole life” Wrote Rose Aceves
After the workout. Start to relax and then this happens. Fucken cramp. Look at this shit. Painful yes it was.

In case you didn’t know, cramps are quite common, and is the result of the muscles contracting forcibly and involuntarily without relaxing. Mild cramps usually last a couple of seconds, while more severe ones can last up to several hours. Ouch! In the latter’s case, the msucles can contract to form a lump or knot under the skin, which is what seems to have happened in Bermudez’s case.
Drinking water before, during and after your workout, and keeping yourself hydrated is usually a good way to avoid muscle cramps.
