I have kept RLS at bay my entire life by lifting weights with my lower body. Specifically: squats, leg presses, and lunges. However, when I do leg extensions I have had mixed results. Sometimes it helps my RLS; other times it makes it worse--so please be careful.

After doing these exercises, the relief lasts for 48 hours for me. After that, I have to return to the gym and do them again.

You can research all these exercises on the internet.

Yes I find when I do squats, RLS seems to go away for a couple of days. I stopped going to the gym a year ago as my husband was made redundant, and I find my RLS is worse because of this. I walk most days which helps, but need more exercise to really make a difference. I also find that drinking a small bottle of tonic water helps me. (I like the bitter flavor!)
