After some exercise, we always feel that our leg muscles have some stiffness, especially after running, this feeling is very obvious. If not relieved in time, it is likely to cause the leg to become thicker and thicker, so we should stretch the leg stiffness in time. Do you know what to do with leg stiffness? How do you stretch stiff leg muscles?
How should leg stiffness stretch
Stretch your quadriceps
Stand with your back straight, shoulders extended back, abdomen in, pelvis forward. Stand with your legs together, bend your right knee back and bring the heel of your right foot close to your hip. Grab the ankle or ball of your right foot and shift your weight to your left leg (using the wall or back of a chair for balance). Slowly bring your foot closer to your tailbone and avoid arching your back. After holding for 15 to 20 seconds, return to the starting position and repeat the stretch with the other leg.
Leg bend knee, kneel support on the pad, the other leg straight, control in front of the body. Hold the stretch for 20 to 40 seconds, then repeat with the opposite leg for 3 sets of each leg.
Stretch your biceps
With your feet on a high fixture, straighten your feet and press your body to the side. Try to touch the tips of your feet with the fingertips of your hands and feel the stretch in the back of your thighs.
The cause of leg muscle stiffness
During exercise, the muscles of the lower extremities contract frequently, and the muscles themselves are also strained to some extent. This results in a higher blood supply for calf movement, which is increased by the dilation of small arteries in the muscle. The congestion of muscle tissue after exercise cannot dissipate immediately, and the muscle will be more swollen. On the other hand, when the muscle is stimulated by the exercise traction, the muscle itself will also produce certain fatigue, and the fascia will also produce certain strain, which will also aggravate the swelling.
