Getting Back to Active with the County Fair!
After a long year of social distancing, we are all ready to get back out and enjoy the fairs and festivals popping up in our communities! The excitement of summer events is ramping up, but after a year of Netflix binging and reduced levels of activity, you may have become deconditioned and more prone to pain and injury. Here are some tips to keep you safe and ready to return to normal activity!
Before you head out this year, do the following:
- Lay down flat on your back. Stretch out your left leg parallel to the ground, and then raise the right leg towards the sky. Stretch out your right arm as far as you can, trying to touch the top of your toes. Hold that pose for 30 seconds and then switch. Do 3 reps each before starting on your day’s adventure.
- Again while lying flat, stretch your left leg out flat on the ground. Curl your right leg so that the top of your thigh touches your chest. Then, spin your leg to the left and hold it for 15 seconds before spinning it to the right again. Switch and do the same thing for your left leg, doing each side three times.
