Toe Touch Challenge
What: Spend 1 - 2 minutes each day trying to touch your toes for the next 30 days. Hinging at the hips, gently lean forward until you can't bend any further. Contract your abs during the motion to reduce the shear force on the lower back. Hold this position for 20-30 seconds as you feel the muscle tissue stretch. Slowly release, then repeat 3-4 times. To avoid injury, warm up your legs and lower back first by walking around briefly or even shaking out your legs a bit. If you are consistent throughout the challenge, you will see flexibility improvements. To complete the challenge, track "Yes" 30 days.
When: August 1 - 31
Why: The toe touch exercise fully engages the abdominal wall and helps to tone your abs, trims down your waist, and strengthens your core. This exercise also helps to improve your posture, flexibility, and balance.
