In brief: Running, jumping

Typically the symptoms are caused by activities with a pounding type of repetive motion on the legs such as running, jumping, aerobics, etc.
The best way to avoid this problem is stretching, well cushioned shoes replaced when necessary, nsaids, and ice to affected areas after working out. Nsaids also can be helpful.
