Toe Touch Sequence

The first stretch here is very subtle. Bend forward, grab your shins (below is the best photo I could find) and then internally rotate your legs at the hip joints, while keeping your feet together. Hold for 5 seconds and repeat twice.
Then, place a softball, a foam roller, or other object between your knees. Place your toes on a platform (one last use for phone books) and bend, first backward, then forward at the hips, trying to touch your toes. After this, place your heels on the platform, keeping the object between your knees, bend backward and then forward, trying to reach your toes.
Finally, cross your ankles and try to touch your toes. This gives an added stretch to the IT band.
