Coach's Tips

Raise your legs and move up and down. The faster and longer you move, the more your core muscles are trained!

How to Flutter Kick

Starting Position

1. Lie on your back on an exercise mat with your arms by your side, palms down, and legs extended.

2. Lift your head and shoulders off the floor so your chin is pointed toward your chest.

Proper Form

1. Begin the exercise by lifting your legs off the floor and raising them to a 45-degree angle.

2. Kick your legs up and down in a scissor-like motion while keeping your lower back pressed into the floor.

3. Move your legs up and down in a controlled and rhythmic manner, as if you were swimming.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lift your legs up and exhale as you lower them back down.

2. Keep your breath steady throughout the exercise.


1. Make sure to keep your core engaged and your lower back pressed into the floor the entire time.

2. If you feel discomfort in your neck or lower back, stop immediately and seek medical advice.
