Fit Friday: Wide-legged forward bend

While we all know that touching our toes is a nice, feel-good stretch, this move pushes that a bit further by sinking deeper into the position and pushing against the resistance of your body.

The wide-legged forward bend is excellent for strengthening the thighs and knees, stretching out the calves and lengthening the back. It is also said to be helpful for those suffering with asthma and sinus issues.

We challenge you to hold the wide-legged bend for up to 10 breaths. Add this move into your exercise routine regularly to reap the benefits of this awesome pose.
