When you spend a lot of time sitting down, there is a very real syndrome that you could suffer from. It's called "Dead Butt Syndrome" according to Yahoo. A name like that almost sounds like that should be a punk or metal band.

Basically what happens is that when you are sitting down for long periods of time, your butt may "fall asleep". Even though Montana is a very active state, with things to do all year round, there are still some activities in Montana that can cause a person to get a case of "Dead Butt Syndrome". Here are the top 5.

Top 5 Montana Activities That Can Cause "Dead Butt Syndrome

Driving Across the State- Montana is a big state to drive across. If you were to drive all the way east and west across the state using Interstate 90 and Interstate 94, you would be driving a little over 800 miles. If you are able to drive the posted speed limit, it would take you over 10 and you would be sitting the entire time.

Spending Time in Our National Parks- Whether it is Yellowstone or Glacier, you may be waiting. You could be waiting for "Old Faithful" to erupt while sitting on those benches. You may have to wait for the bison to cross the road, or tourists to get out of your way, your butt may fall asleep. Maybe you are waiting for the Going to the Sun road to open up, or to take your time going to the top. All of that may take a while and cause your butt to fall asleep.

Hunting- Not all hunting is active and trekking through the woods. Sometimes you could find yourself sitting in a duck blind or a deer stand for hours and hours waiting for the perfect shot. Be aware of the "Dead Butt".

Fishing- Sometimes floating on a lake and fishing is just what a person needs to have their troubles or work melt away. If you are sitting too long on that boat, dock or the side of a river, be careful, your butt may fall asleep.

Floating A River- Towards the end of summer, when the rivers are flowing low and slow, floating a river can take a while. Depending on where you are it can take hours. Sometimes being stuck in an inner tube, for that length of time, can be uncomfortable. Not only do you have to watch out for the dreaded "Dead Butt Syndrome", but if the river is low enough, you may bang your butt against the rocks on the bottom of the river too.
