Steps to perform
Now let’s move on to the performance of the exercise. Follow the below to know the exact steps to perform flutter kicks.
- Lay a mat on the ground
- Lie on your back as shown
- Place your arms beside your thighs and feel free to get support from your hands when needed
- Now lift your left leg slightly upwards and hold for few seconds while your right leg lies on the mat
- Then lift your right leg slightly upwards while playing your left leg down
- Repeat for 100 repetitions
when performing flutter kicks, keep in touch not to form any arch in your back. Back should be entirely lied on the ground in the entire time.
Also, it will be easier for your back if your legs are not that away from the ground. So what I recommend is perform the exercise while keeping your legs near to the ground.
