Here is an alternative to a toe touch exercise that can be done with a foam roller. Start by standing up straight with your feet a few feet apart. Your toes should be pointed forward. Hold the foam roller at each end and keep your arms straight. Tighten your abs as you raise your arms up over your head. Now bring your arms down and bend at the waist. Stretch your arms and lower the roller down as if to touch your right foot. Raise the roller back up over your head and bend down as if to touch your left foot. Then bring it back over your head again. Repeat the pattern for 2 sets of 10 repetitions to start.

The lunge pose can be done using a foam roller. Begin the exercise by standing straight with your feet a few inches apart. Place the roller a few feet in front of you, on the floor. It should lie perpendicular to your body. Put the bottom of your left foot on the roller and bend your left knee, keeping your right leg straight behind you. Your left thigh should be parallel to the floor at this point. Hold for 15 seconds and come to the starting position. Repeat the movement on the opposite side.
