October 07, 2011


This exercise is just like scissor kicks but you are utilizing a stability ball and facing downward.

How to do a Downward Scissors On Ball:

Position yourself on a medicine ball so your pelvis region is directly over it. Your hands will be supporting your upper body. Lift your legs up into the air and begin to scissor them back and forth keeping your knees straight.

Muscle group worked:

Glutes and low back

Target Repetitions for Muscle Tone/Endurance: 8-12

Why Downward Scissors on Ball works:

Downward Flutters works so well because it concentrates the movement specifically to your glute region. By stabilizing your upper body and pelvis region your glutes are now isolated.

Keep your knees as straight.

Important!:

Breath slow and steadily throughout the exercise.

Disclaimer: Talk to your primary care physician before beginning any exercise regimen.
