Point Your Toes for Abdominal Muscle Strength

Stand with legs shoulder-width apart, back straight, head pulled toward the sky. Point your right foot about a foot forward and bring it back to center.
As you do this, make sure the movement originates in your abdominal muscles, especially the lower ones, and point forward. Exhale. Inhale when you bring the leg back. Do this slowly for four sets of ten repetitions for each leg.
