  • I googled, and it appears drinking pickle juice is a "time-honored" home remedy for muscle cramps. :)

  • You should also stretch as well,

  • Maybe it is the salt in the pickle juice to help replace electrolytes lost during the exercise, or maybe the vinegar is to change the chemistry somehow. Never heard of it, but I'm interested. I stretch after exercise and am never stiff or sore.
