All right, the next exercise is leg flutters or flutter kicks. And basically what you’re going to do is you’re going to lay down on your back. Put your hands down by your side. You’re going to make sure that your back is flat against the floor. All right? And what you’re going to do is there’s two different variations of doing this. And what’s it’s going to do is it’s going to work your legs, but we’re also going to work the core, because the core is what’s keeping your legs up off the ground. So we’re going to lift, and then we’re going to kick like this.
Make sure that you’re breathing the entire time. Your core is tight. Your legs are straight. You’re working your legs, your core. You’re kicking, or you can go back and forth just like this, which are more like scissors, flutter kicks, back and forth. This is a great exercise to work your legs and your core.
Basically, hold it for about 20 to 30 seconds, and then rest. And you can do two to three sets of this for about the same amount of time, and you’re going to really feel it burn after a while. So up. Now when you do the flutter kicks, make sure that your back is flat against the floor, because if you arch you might feel a little bit of, you know, a pain in your lower back while you’re doing the exercise. If you feel pain, stop what you’re doing because you want to listen to your body. You don’t want to push any farther.
So just make sure that your form is correct when you’re doing these exercises, because the last thing we want to do is injure ourselves, which will put us out for days upon weeks, and then we really get nowhere in the end. So basically, make sure back is flat, core is tight, because your core is supporting it. And make sure that you don’t have any pain in your lower back.
