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!
