Floor Toe Reach Overview

The straight leg toe touch, also called floor toe touch, is an exercise that isolates the abdominal muscles. It is a version of the abdominal crunch.

As you go through flexion with the upper portion of your abs, the stretched leg toe touch keeps continual stress on the lower abs.

How to Do It?

  1. Lay supine so that your arms and legs are straight and in a relaxed position.
  2. Raise your legs to the point where they are perpendicular to the ground.
  3. As you exhale, extend straight up to your toes.
  4. Gradually lower yourself back to the initial point once your abs are fully tightened, and your back's upper part is off the floor.
  5. Repeat the steps for the specified number of reps.

Floor Toe Reach Tips

  1. To strengthen the mind-muscle connection, exhale deeply as if you were blowing out candles.
  2. If your lower back hurts during this exercise, use more anti-extension and anti-rotation motions.
  3. Avoid putting your hands behind your head since this puts too much tension on your neck.
