Don't Let Holiday Travel Cramp Your Style!

The holiday season is an exciting time to see family and friends that we may not have seen since last year.  But those pesky air and car rides to get there can be uncomfortable at times.

Here are a few stretches to ease your legs when they become cramped and constrained.

Butterfly stretch - This stretch does wonders for the thighs and hamstrings. Sit down on the floor and place the soles of your feet together. Slowly put pressure on your legs and try to flatten then toward the ground. Don't overdo this stretch.

Quad stretch - A quadriceps are a group of muscles located near your front thigh.  Strong quads will help you run, walk or lunge with ease. To do this exercise, simply lift your foot toward your back end. Repeat this motion in a relaxed state.
Foldover stretch - This stretch will target your glutes, back, and neck as well as your hamstrings. While stand with your feet slightly apart, slowly bend forward until your head is reaching toward the floor. Hold this pose for at least 45 seconds before releasing.
