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.
