Swimsuit season is right around the corner, so it’s time to ramp up your focus on your abs. Laying leg flutters are a great exercise for targeting the upper and lower abs. The longer you can do them, the more effective they are. For this week, I challenge you to perform this exercise for a total of 90 seconds a day. Who’s game?
To perform, pay close attention to form here, since proper form what makes this exercise effective. Poor forms will limit the challenge to your abs, and therefore limit your results.
- Lay on the floor face up. Your arms should be at your sides, and your ankles should be together.
- Slowly lift your shoulder blades and ankles off the floor about 1 to 2 inches. Tilt your pelvis so your back is pushing against the floor. You shouldn’t be arching, and your abs should be engaged.
- Quickly flutter your ankles back and forth for a set length of time and then relax. Remember to breathe throughout the exercise. Repeat three times.
Let me know how you do on the #LegFlutterCoreChallenge!
