Nobody thinks to strengthen their toes, yet these muscles bear the weight of our bodies the most. Build strength and prevent injuries with this simple towel exercise: Lay the towel out in front of you, and place both bare feet on top. Using your toes, try to scrunch the towel all the way in. You’ll have to adjust the towel as it bunches up underneath your feet, but try to work your way through the entire length of the towel.
This is an exercise that can be done every day, especially if you’ve had chronic foot issues in the past. You’ll strengthen the muscles in your feet and ultimately be able to train harder and run faster.
