Friday Fitness Challenge: Laying Leg Flutters for Tightened Core

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.

  1. Lay on the floor face up. Your arms should be at your sides, and your ankles should be together.
  1. 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.
  1. 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!
