Toe Touch Squat for legs and back:

  2. Bend your knees and lower your hips into a squat position.
  3. Reach your arms down between your legs and place your hands on the ground.
  4. Straighten your legs and lift your hips up while keeping your hands on the ground.
  5. Lower back into the squat position and repeat the movement for 10-15 reps.
