So what happens if you get a cramp *while* you're doing your exercises (which are good)?

Well getting a cramp *while* you're doing an exercise typically means the muscles are really really weak. Sorry. (I'm patting you kindly on the shoulder while I say this.) So, what to do? Hold your foot in your hand and stabilize the toes so they can't move. Then press the pads of your toes into your hand, contracting the muscles on the sole of the foot. Doing this as an isometric exercise should help you gain strength without re-triggering the cramping. Good luck! Let me know how it goes!
