Toe Stretches

Toes are delicate little things, so be careful not to push too hard when you’re stretching them. This simple stretch will gently relieve tension in your toes. Start by standing up straight, then shift your weight onto your left foot and lift your right heel off of the floor, bending at the knee, until you feel a stretch in the toes of your right foot. Hold this for 10 deep breaths, then repeat with your left foot.

>>Next: Squat for your quads.
