“Not stretching out after training like cycling or running will especially make the legs feel tighter,” says yoga teacher Donna Noble. And all of the three large muscles in the legs (the quads, hamstrings and calves) have huge knock-on effects on the rest of your body. Tightness can translate as joint stiffness, back pain and even affect performance.
The message? Don’t skip your post-workout cool down. But until your next session, these stretches might make the world of difference to your tight leg muscles.
