An Endurance Athlete/Nobel Prize-Winner Takes on Muscle Cramping and Soreness.
HOTSHOT was founded by Nobel Prize-Winner, Dr. Rod Mackinnon, and his friend Dr. Bruce Bean. While deep sea kayaking together one winter, they were both seized with life-threatening muscle cramps. They experienced such debilitating pain that neither could steady their kayaks. While they survived the excruciating moment, it flipped the switch on their curiosity – Why do we cramp? What is the cure? As neuroscientists, they were uniquely qualified to find the answer.
