The Body Control Pilates Pocket Traveller: In association with British Airways by Lynne Robinson
From the bestselling Body Control Pilates team, a practical guide to en-route exercise and how to arrive at your destination in peak conditionEvery year the number of passengers travelling over long distances increases. A long journey - whether it's a long-haul flight or a car, bus, boat or train ride - upsets our daily rhythms, circulation, digestion and even our posture and movement. Yet there are simple things that everyone can do to make the whole travelling experience safer and more comfortable. This guide gives advice on everything from the types of food and drink you'll travel on best, to preventing deep vein thrombosis, medication that might put you at risk on long journeys and countering jet lag. Its main focus, however, is on exercises to do before, during and after your journey. These mini-workouts are designed to stretch out tight muscles, mobilise joints, relax parts of the body prone to tension, improve circulation and keep the back supple and strong. Whether you are flying, taking the train, car, bus or boat, this handy guide will ensure you arrive feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to enjoy your stay.
