Instructions

Stand with feet together and legs straight. Bend forward at the waist, rounding your back as you reach for your toes with your hands. Hold this position for at least 20 seconds.

Purpose of the exercise

The Toe Touch Stretch targets the hamstrings and lower back; two areas prone to injury during physical activity. Adding this move to your routine helps maintain and/or increase your range of motion through your hamstrings and lower back, which reduces the risk of injury and muscle stiffness. This is a great go-to move for anyone and after any kind of physical activity.
