Day 58: Scissor kicks

The scissor kick was sent to us by fitness expert Mandi Clossey who works at Somerset CPAs in Indianapolis. This exercise works on strengthening abdominal muscles.
 
Step 1: Lie on your back with your legs extended.
Step 2: Place your hands flat on the ground, palms down, at your sides.
Step 3: Keeping your legs straight, raise your feet together so they are not touching the ground.
Step 4: Move your legs/feet up and down, imitating the movement of scissors. Your focus should be on letting your lower abdomen do the work.
Step 5: You can mix it up a bit by moving your legs horizontally, side to side, instead of just up and down.
 
Repeat 20 times.
 
Here's a video of some of the Somerset CPAs doing Scissor Kicks.
 
Clossey, who operates the Web site Team BeachBody, is willing talk to anyone or provide information for office challenges, as well as consult on health/fitness. Clossey also maintains a Facebook page where she provides fitness tips as well as tips for dealing with hectic busy schedules.
