Alternate Heel Touchers

Type of exercise:Strength
Primary Muscle:Abdominals
Equipment:No equipment


  1. Lie down with your back and feet flat on the floor and your knees bent upwards. Keep your arms flat alongside your body. This is the starting position.

  2. Lift your torso about 3-4 inches off the ground and towards the right as you reach down with your right hand to touch your right heel. Exhale as you do this. Hold the pose for a second.

  3. Return to the starting position as you inhale. Repeat for the left side. This concludes one repetition.

  4. Repeat for as many reps as needed.


  • Make sure you lift your torso, not just your head, as you may strain your neck.
