Flutter Kick

The Flutter Kick is a core-strengthening movement that primarily targets the lower abdominals. This exercise involves a continuous, alternating leg motion, which also engages the hip flexors and increases lower body endurance. Typically used in Pilates, barre, and strength training classes, flutter kicks are effective for enhancing core stability and improving overall abdominal tone.

Points of Performance

  • Starting Position: Lie on your back with your legs extended at a 45-degree angle. Keep your arms straight beside you on the floor, palms facing down. Slightly lift your head, neck, and shoulders off the ground.
  • Leg Movement: Keep your legs straight and toes pointed. Begin by lowering one leg towards the floor.
  • Alternate Legs: Raise the lowered leg back to the starting angle and simultaneously lower the opposite leg, ensuring your core remains engaged throughout. Alternately continue the leg movements, maintaining a steady pace and controlled motion.
