The Flutter Kick is a core exercise that primarily targets the abdominals, but also works the obliques. This is a core exercise which is well suited to beginner lifters.



  • Lie on your back with your hands on either side of your body and palms facing down on the floor to support you.
  • Raise your legs off the floor a small amount (about two inches) and hold them there using your core muscles.
  • Raise one leg up by about a foot, and then lower it back to the starting position whilst simultaneously raising the other leg.
  • Repeat this alternating leg raise flutter kick motion until you reach failure.
