Toe Touch Two Exercise
Always remember, stretching should feel good, not painful. Only stretch to the point of comfort.
Stretching is a great stress buster to get up and do through out your day, especially if you spend many hours sitting at your job.
Hold a weight plate or dumbbell across your chest. Lift your head and shoulders off the floor without reaching with your hands. Only do this if you are strong throughout your core. When you first try this, use a light weight plate or dumbbell and see how your body reacts to the added resistance.
How to perform The Toe Touch Two Exercise:
- Lie on your back with your legs and arms extended toward the ceiling.
- Slowly lift your head and shoulders as you reach as high as you can with your fingers
- Lie back down slowly, carefully
When doing sit-ups, or any exercises where you are lying on the floor, it is best to have a good thick foam exercise mat underneath you to protect your back, spine, and butt bones.
