Scissor Crunch

     

Starting Position

Lying on your back, place your hands by your sides with palms facing down. Keeping your back flat on the floor slide your feet in towards your bum to form an arch. Engage your core by tucking your belly button in towards your spine and prepare to raise your legs off the floor.

Execution

Extend your left leg straight ahead at a 45 degree angle to the floor and your right leg close to 90 degrees towards the ceiling with toes pointing straight ahead. Keeping your back flat on the floor start to raise your left leg whilst lowering your right leg to form a scissor motion between your knees as they cross over. Once both legs have switched positions repeat the movement by returning each leg back the starting position. If you find your back starting to arch try only lowering your lower leg to a position 60 degrees to the floor instead of 45 degrees at this will put less strain on your lower back.

Benefits

Core and abdominal strengthening

Special Considerations

*If you have abdominal muscle separation avoid this exercise and instead perform a Bird Dog exercise
