Weekly Wednesday Workout: Flutter Kicks

We have got a fun one today for the legs and the abs! Double trouble!

httpv://youtu.be/eEG9uXjx4vQ

I do this exercise in my abs express class and by the time it starts I am so ready for it to be over! I believe a variation of these are done in Pilates. These are also known as scissor kicks. It is an awesome core exercise as well as good work for the legs as well. I am so down for any exercise that work multiple muscle groups! Also, it is in front of the TV #approved! 🙂

Have you ever tried Flutter Kicks?

I call these the “icing on the cake” b/c I usually save them for the very end of an ab trio! They are the afterburners and boy do they work!! One of my favs!! These should be in like an “ab” top 10 or hall of fame somewhere 🙂

I do love doing exercises while watching tv so this one may work not during scandal though I may fluttter and miss something.

Hahaha, this had me smiling. It’s so true though, if you blink during the last 2 minutes in the show, you will miss something!

I always think these are hard no matter when I do them -beginning, end extra workout. Great move!!

Reply
Nellie December 15, 2013 - 9:30 am

I love that you posted, “in front of the TV #approved” because you know so many of us do exercises in front of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or #Scandal. Preferably the latter..

I didn’t know these were called flutter kicks. I have been calling them leg raises. I do the flutter kicks as part of my morning AB workout. I do 10 sets of 50 reps of different AB exercises back to back in a cycle. Within the cycle I do 2 sets of 50 flutter kicks and 2 sets of 50 scissors kicks. They are very good AB exercises.

Over the holidays we do tend to watch movies and I am going to try these during one of those times! Also planks and situps and pushups are on the agenda! Bring on the good food!

I do this when I get a moment to put the baby down. For now, Deep squats while holding a 20lb baby is enough for me. Can’t wait to try a variation.

Nellie December 15, 2013 - 9:27 am

deep squats with 20lbs of baby is WORK!

I haven’t done these in a while! I’m going to try to add them to my routine. Because once again, finding time to exercise is becoming a problem!

Reply
Nellie December 14, 2013 - 9:37 pm

I know right? The holidays and December is such a crazy time!

Reply
Leslie December 11, 2013 - 10:14 pm

Those definitely look rough…especially considering those types of exercises always seem to be reserved for the end of workouts when you start off shaking from exhaustion.

Reply
Nellie December 14, 2013 - 9:37 pm

Yes, but its good because its not a ton of moving around!

Reply
Leah December 12, 2013 - 8:27 pm

I actually like these – I can feel them working. Let’s hope they know how to work extra well over the holidays!

Nellie December 14, 2013 - 9:37 pm

Awesome Leah 🙂
