TOE OVER HEEL
(This exercise is shown from the side, but should be done with your back against the wall, to ensure proper form.)
Proper Form: Sit on the ground with your back against a wall, and legs straight in front of you. (A). Squeeze your quads tight enough to pick your heels up off the floor. Raise the heel of your one foot as high as you can over the toe of the other leg (without bringing it in towards the middle). (B). Lower your leg, without letting this leg go all the way back to the floor, as your mobility increases, so will your range of motion for this exercise. Do 10-15 reps on this leg, then repeat on the other leg.
Muscles engaged: This exercise works your leg muscles primarily, and lower back/core secondarily.
