What is a toe touch?

A physical exercise. you jump up and and have your legs sticking up to the sides and touch your toe a toe touch is a move in cheerleading when you jump in the air and you spread your legs A toe touch is a type of jump frequently used in cheerleading. To properly do a toe touch, you must jump, throw your legs up and to the side, and reach for your toes with your hands. DO NOT LEAN FORWARD! Leaning forward is not a toe touch. You back must be straight. The toe touch, is the most popular move in cheerleading. As many people join cheerleading, that is the first thing they learn. You have to be kind of flexible to do because if you jump up in the air and spread your legs to far you might pull a muscle. So fnow I'm going to tell you how you do a toe touch step bye step. 1. you jump up in the air 2. in the process of you in the air you spread your legs & touch your toes 3. the right hand touches the right foot, & the left hand touches the left foot you actually don't touch your toes; just so you know. you just reach for them. and, if you want to know the truth .. it's not called "spreading your legs", it's called straddling. spreading your legs sounds so disgusting. a toe touch is when someone jumps in the air and does a straddle. ( This is pretty much just doing the spilts in th air) Hope that helps!!!
