Your toes take a beating throughout the day, so make sure they get the attention they need. Exercises such as toe raises, toe curls, towel curls, marble pick-up, and sandwalking all help strengthen and condition the toes to prevent discomfort.
Stretching is important before any fitness regimen. Take about 5 to 10 minutes to stretch before a workout. These stretches can include wall pushups, hamstring stretches, and calf stretches that all help the feet and legs in preventing injuries.
