Day 9: Toe Touch

Work on your flexibility with this easy exercise. Flexibility is known as the range of motion at a given joint. What are the benefits of increased flexibility? It increases blood supply and nutrients to joint structures, which in turn increases circulation and leads to greater elasticity of surrounding tissues. In addition, flexibility will increase your physical performance and keep you feeling young!  

Step 1: Stand with your legs straight and your feet shoulder-width apart.
Step 2: Let your body hang forward and touch as far down on your body as you can. 
Step 3: Take your right hand and touch your left toe, then take your left hand and touch your right toe.
Step 4: Stand up.
Step 5: Repeat ten to twenty times.
