The Scissor Exercise is one of those exercises that don’t require the need for an exercising machine. What is more beautiful about this exercise is that you can do it anywhere you want, on the floor, as long as there is enough space around you to perform the exercise. Find a good spot in the gym with enough space around and a floor mat. Make sure there is nobody around you so you won’t make contact with someone while doing the exercise.
Lay on the floor with a straight back and lift the legs up high in a vertical position. The body should form a 90 degree angle at the abdominal muscles; this is the initial position. From that, cross the legs one over the other for a as long as you can. There is no use of dumbbells, barbells or any type of weights; the only resistance that you get is from your body. So, performing repetitions as much as you can is perfect.
This exercise aims for the buttock and abdominal muscles. But don’t exclude the entire legs too. The upper body is static and take cares of the balance you maintain during the repetitions.
To increase the static position, straighten your arms on the floor and place your palms flat out on the floor. Use the hands and palms to make perfect repetitions without disturbing the 90 degree angle balance of the body.
