Toe Touch Modification

Toe Touch Modification – Develops proper hip hinge mechanics and mobility in the hamstring and calves. Without being able to touch your toes, doing beneficial exercises such as deadlifts should not be performed until this can be done properly.

-Stand with a foam roller, or any similar object in between your knees

-Squeeze the object with your legs and perform a toe touch

-Keep your leg angle the same (don’t bend at the knee and don’t lock your knees out)

-Hinge down and try to touch your toes or get as close as you can

-Return to starting position and repeat, trying to increase the range of motion each rep
