Next time they lock up, park on a slight incline, shift to neutral, and crack open the steel lines at the master cylinder. If that lets them release, suspect contaminated brake fluid. If they do not release, open the bleeder screws. If that lets them release, suspect the rubber flex hoses are restricted.
