After a recent trip to Vermont I experienced how long car rides take a toll on our bodies. Hours spent in a seated position cause our muscles to feel stiff and tight.
Its important to move around as frequently as you can during travel – you may look funny stretching at the rest stop, but your body will thank you.
We want to mobilize tight areas and activate major muscles groups that were essentially inactive for the duration of the trip. Performing a few drills when you arrive at your destination can make a huge difference. Here are a few you can perform without any equipment:
Perform 2-3 rounds of 8-10 reps
Wall T-Spine Stretch
Wall slide with Lift-off
