Pickle Juice Shot - yes...you read that correctly. We have to admit, we never thought we'd sell a Pickle Juice Shot at The Feed, but it turns out that this might be the simplest and most effective way for you to stop cramps while exercising. Contrary to what you might think, there's no actual evidence that electrolytes alone will stop cramping, however the evidence is piling up that Pickle Juice Shots do stop cramps.
Cramps are probably the most feared outcome for endurance athletes, and until recently, we really haven't had a good solution for preventing or stopping them. Many athletes cramp during training or events despite training well and eating perfectly. If an athlete who cramps could avoid cramping or stop their cramping quickly...that'd be the holy grail of race day hacks! All of that said, we'll freely admit that drinking a Pickle Juice Shot might not taste good...in fact, you might think it's down right gross...however we can guarantee you're going to want once of these shots the next time you're cramping and can't keep going.
Athletes can either use this shot immediately before or during exercise...or both as needed. As with any product, we strongly recommend that you test this product in training before using during a key event.
We don't love the taste but we love how effective the product is at reducing cramping. We suck one down before long, hot, hard training and racing days. We haven't found a better way to get those electrolytes.
