The Rear Leg Scissors, also known as the Flutter Kicks, is a bodyweight exercise that primarily targets the lower body muscles including the glutes, hamstrings, and calves. This exercise is performed by lying flat on your back with your hands tucked under your glutes for support, lifting your legs a few inches off the ground, then alternating raising and lowering each leg in a scissor-like motion. The movement should be smooth and controlled, with a focus on engaging the core muscles for stability. The Rear Leg Scissors is a low-impact exercise that is suitable for all fitness levels, and can be easily modified to increase or decrease the intensity. For beginners, this exercise can be done with a smaller range of motion and slower pace, while more advanced fitness enthusiasts can add ankle weights or increase the speed of the movement. In addition to toning and strengthening the lower body muscles, the Rear Leg Scissors also helps to improve hip mobility and flexibility, and can be incorporated into a full-body workout routine for maximum benefits.
