Ever experience abdominal and ribcage cramps during a performance?
I have a bad knee so I walk 4-6 miles about 4 days a week. The past couple weeks I've been singing my set during my walks (not for any reason other than to help myself remember the lyrics.) While performing this past Saturday, I began experiencing cramps 4 songs into the set of what was a 90 minute set. The cramps were from my abs to my ribcage and not very fun of an experience. I've never experienced this before and I'm pretty sure that it's because I took my walk earlier that same day, which I usually don't on gig nights. I am overweight but am thinking that maybe I just got a little cocky for my own good thinking that I could get away with a workout that day. Just curious if anyone has ever had this experience before. For those that are curious, the cramps didn't stop me from doing my job, but it made it very uncomfortable.
