Overview

Scissor kicks are an abdominal exercise that work the rectus abdominis, obliques, and transverse abdominis. To do a scissor kick, lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Raise your legs up so that they are parallel to the floor and then cross them at the ankles. Keep your core engaged and slowly lower your legs back down to the starting position. Repeat for 10-12 repetitions.
