With healthy circulation, the body can efficiently provide nutrients and oxygen throughout the body and flush waste from muscles, tendons, and soft tissue. If you’ve been sitting for an extended period—or even standing for a long time—you may notice a cold feeling in your hands, legs, or feet. This is a sign that your veins have narrowed, reducing blood flow to your extremities. Poor circulation can cause tingling, numbness, or cramping that can be especially bothersome during or after a workout routine.
This stretch routine with Cecilia is designed to promote healthy blood flow, reduce muscle cramping and reduce recovery time.
