At-Home Exercises for Poor Circulation

Circulation of blood throughout the body is one of the most important functions in our biological system. Circulation supplies oxygen to the organs in the body and to the brain. Poor circulation can be caused by a number of factors. Some of these include smoking, lack of exercises, or sitting for too long. You begin to feel numbness, tingling and other uncomfortable and undesirable symptoms. 

Fitness expert and guru Rosalie Brown can walk you through several basic workouts that can be done at home to increase circulation and lubricate the joints, to ultimately reduce pain.

Calf Raises

  1. Hold on to a chair to enhance balance.
  2. Lift your calves nice and high.
  3. Squeeze the calves hard to increase blood flow.
  4. Flex your toes as you lift.
  5. Engage in a rock and roll action as you move up and down.
  6. Do eight reps.
