Exercises to Improve Leg Circulation In 10 Minutes

Introduction:In only 10 minutes you can improve blood circulation in your legs by doing these five exercises. Consider doing them several times a day, making sure to rest in between.

  • 01

    10-Minute Walk

    Walk briskly for 10 minutes, making sure to take long strides to stretch and extend the leg muscles. If you sit most of the day at work, consider taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walking a few laps around the halls.

  • 02

    Leg Lifts

    Lie flat on your back and raise both of your legs straight up. Hold them in place for two minutes; and then slowly lower them back to the floor. Rest for a few seconds and then repeat the leg lifts for two more minutes. Continue until you have completed five two-minute sets.

  • 03

    Circular Leg Exercises

    Sit on the edge of a table or bench that is high enough for your legs to dangle but not touch the floor. Make circular motions with both legs going in the same direction for two minutes. Rest a few seconds and then reverse direction for two more minutes. Continue until you have done five two-minute circular leg exercises, and then lie flat on your back once more to rest.

  • 04

    Toe and Ankle Flexes

    While sitting, bend and flex your foot and ankles with your toes stretched out and pointed upwards to work leg muscles and improve blood circulation. Do several repetitions of this for 10 minutes. This exercise is especially effective when done throughout the day while sitting in an office chair, on a couch or on the side of a bed.

  • 05

    Poolside Leg Exercise

    Sit on the side of a pool with only your legs in the water. Briskly, move your legs back and forth and up and down in the water for two minutes at a time with a few seconds rest in between. Do five two-minute sets and then remove your legs from the water. Stand and walk around a bit. Repeat the exercise as desired.
