Ab Workouts: Scissor Kicks

September 02, 2013 1 min read

This fun and effective ab exercise is not only a great tummy tightener, but it also works your hips, inner thighs and outer thighs, making it one of our favorite ab workouts.

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1:

Lie back on the floor. Bring yourself up onto your elbows, tuck your lower back into the ground and bring your knees up slightly. You can do this lying flat on your back IF you can keep your lower back on the ground. It is very important that you keep your lower back engaged with the floor throughout this entire movement. You don’t want your back arching up. This could lead to injury.

Step 2:

Lift your feet off the floor and separate your legs as far as you can. NOTE: The closer your legs are to the ground, the harder scissor kicks will be. The higher they are up, the easier. Find what works for you, and don’t be afraid to challenge yourself - as long as your lower back stays in touch with the floor at all times.

Step 3:

Bring your legs towards each other, crossing one over the other before they meet. Keep the movement controlled. Engage your core. Bring your legs back out again and repeat the movement. Switch up the top and bottom leg. Perform for 20 - 60 seconds. Keep your shoulders down and neck relaxed throughout this ab workout. We don’t want any tension!

You can perform ab workouts everyday - just make sure you incorporate VARIETY into your routines!
