This is an excellent exercise which targets all the abdominal muscles and serves as a good addition to y our daily exercise routine.
Once you get into your starting position (as shown), you want to make sure that your core muscles are engaged (pulling your belly button towards your spine and breathing naturally)
Slowly reach your arms towards your toes for 2 counts and lower for 4 counts. Make sure you are lifting your shoulders off the floor as you reach up towards your toes.
To make this exercise more challenging, try lifting your bottom off the floor as your shoulders come up too. Or at some hand weights to make it harder still.
The aim is to do 3 sets of 8-12 Toe Touches (yes you can have a quick rest in between!!). Once you have mastered the sequence, gradually increase the number of repetitions.
