Preventing leg fatigue or tired legs is important if you stand all day at work, run for exercise, or often get general leg fatigue. These 5 simple treatments should help.

The first is a quad stretch. The quad and hip flexors are large muscles in the legs that can fatigue quickly. Stretching them out should help.

The next stretch is for the hip adductors. These also work hard when standing, walking, or running. Stretching them will help prevent fatigue.

The third treatment is to use compression socks like the ones from Socks Lane that I feature in the video. These are great to help increase the circulation to your legs, and move fluid out if you have swelling. They are also great for running to help prevent shin splints and plantar fasciitis. Also if you have a lot of swelling in your feet when pregnant, these can help as well.

Then there is a hamstring stretch. The hamstrings are smaller than the quad muscles, so they can fatigue quicker. Stretching is a great way to get them moving again.

Finally is a calf/plantar fascia stretch. This can be done on a step or curb. It’s a great way to keep the muscles flexible and warmed up to help with overall leg fatigue.
