Stretch Moves on a Long Charter Bus Ride

Not only can long charter bus rides be boring and tiring, but they can also be hard on your body. Your legs can feel cramped and your neck can feel tight. So that’s why we have the perfect stretches that you can do on your next long charter bus ride! Stretching is particularly important because it helps keep your body strong and healthy. While you may think that there are not a lot of stretches to do on the bus, you may actually be surprised by how many you can actually do. Check out some of the moves we have listed down below for you to use on your next trip.

1. Neck

For this stretch, sit up nice and tall in your seat. Next, take your right hand over and place it above your left ear. Gently angle your head to the right while using the weight of your right hand. While doing this stretch it is important to make sure that you manage the space between your right ear and right shoulder. Hold for three deep breaths and repeat the same steps on the other side. After doing this stretch you should feel a nice, deep stretch on both sides of the neck.

2. Shoulders

This is a great stretch if your neck is sore from sleeping in the wrong way or from looking at your phone for too long. In the first step you intertwine both of your hands behind your neck.Then squee both of your elbows toward each other and your face. Use the weight of your hands to lead your chin towards your chest. Slightly tuck in your chin allowing a deep stretch in your neck. Take about four to five deep breaths and hold this posture.

3. Back

This is a great stretch, especially if you don’t have a lot of space around you. First, make sure that your feet are planted flat against the floor, your feet are hip distance apart and that your toes are faced forward. Squeeze your abdominal muscles and intertwine your hands on top of your knees. Inhale and then as you exhale curve your spine towards your seat. Breathe deeply into your upper chest and deep belly. Repeat this process ten times.

4. Legs

Begin this exercise by taking off your shoe (optional) and putting your ankle above your opposite knee. For example, you would place your right ankle on top of your left knee. Most people feel the stretch simply with this position. However, if you do not then you can deepen the stretch by leaning forward and putting your forearms above the crossed leg. Repeat this a few times for both legs and you will feel refreshed and awakened.
