    You drinking enough water etc mate? I doubt its something about how you do the exercise unless you put your foot in a very odd position? Make sure you re properly fueled would be my advice, cramp does happen when benching sometimes.

    During work i drink alot, but having said that during a session i only take a 500ml water bottle, I usually eat my dinner about an hour before i workout (i train at night), so i think im fueled up.......

    Maybe keep stretching it inbetween sets? Or change your foot placement.

    Could just be a nerve from back or hips. Would have thought a problem with the actual muscle would occur with other exercises.
