Day 2 - The Great Toe Pick Up

The Great Toe Pick Up

This exercise is intended to improve dexterity and control in the foot.  It strengthens the intrinsic muscles of the foot between each of the foot bones.  These muscles aid in balance and control of the foot. 
For this exercise you will need some small objects and a bucket.  Variance in the size and shape of the objects will help make the exercise manageable and more fun.  At The Pilates Studio everyone loves to grab on to the scaly tiny toy Dinosaur
To do this exercise pour the small objects on to the floor and place the bucket next to them.  Then with your feet try to pick up each object and place it in the bucket.  This exercise is fun and is especially good for feet that spend a lot of time in shoes.
