How to Do:

  • Simply sit with your feet flat on the floor and your knees at a 90-degree angle.
  • Then lift up your heels while pressing your toes into the floor.
  • Hold that position for several seconds and then lower your heels back down slowly.
  • You can alternate feet or do one at a time.

5. Ankle Rotations:

How to Do:

  • You can improve the circulation in your ankles by moving each foot in a circle, first clockwise for 30 seconds.
  • And then counterclockwise for 30 seconds.
  • As with the calf raises, you can do one ankle at a time or both simultaneously.

6. Start Bike Pedaling:

How to Do:

  • Lie down on the floor with your back flat, keep your hands under your buttocks or, if you prefer, at your sides to prevent back overload.
  • Then lift your legs off the floor in the air, just like you are pedaling on a bike.
  • The higher you elevate your legs, the greater will be the circulation.
