Lymph, also known as lymphatic fluid, moves throughout the body in a series of vessels that have one-way valves. As our muscles contract and relax when we move around, the lymphatic fluid moves very slowly through these vessels.

When muscles contract they help move the lymph in the lymphatic system.

The contradiction and relaxation of skeletal muscles moves lymph trough the lymph vessels.

Contraction of your skeletal muscles.

The muscles that help you move when you want to are called voluntary muscles.

Unlike blood, lymph doesn't have a special pump to move it. It is pushed just by the contraction of muscles.
