You're on your feet for hours, lifting, twisting, bending, and probably doing 10 miles a day. Hey, you're tired and you ache, but you know it comes with the territory.

You're Posture is Critical! – You've got to remind yourself to stand up tall and straight as much as you can. Keeping your posture aligned actually helps your back, legs, and hips, and protects them from stress and achiness. Keep your head up and shoulders pulled back and try your hardest not to slouch. Improving your posture will make a noticeable difference.

Stretching When You Can – When you get a break, even if it's for 2 minutes, you want to stretch out your legs, upper and lower back. Even light stretching for a minute will circulate the blood in your muscles, keeping you from getting tired and cramping up. Trust us, this will help a lot!
