7. Prolonged Sitting or Standing
Our body and muscles are built for movement. If you spend a lot of time sitting or standing, this is not healthy for your muscles, and you might experience leg cramping afterward. Muscles are not being used when you are in a prolonged sitting or standing position; this leads to muscle fatigue and hyperactivity which subsequently causes cramps.
If your profession involves prolonged sitting or standing, try to move your muscles by doing some simple excercises to prevent leg cramps. Changing position while standing on the regular basis e.g. sitting every hour for a couple of minutes, or taking a walk regularly in case of prolonged sitting helps to reduce cramping.
