How to: Decline Scissors
Primary Muscles Used:Abs, Transverse Abdominis
Exercise Families:Trunk Anti-Extension
- Start by lying flat on your back on a decline ab bench, with your feet firmly on the ground and your hands holding the foot pads or support bar. Engage your abdominal muscles by drawing your belly button in towards your spine and with your legs extended, lift your feet off the ground so your body forms a straight line. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and brace your core. Slightly raise one of your legs higher than the other to then quickly cross your legs horizontally over each other, ensuring that neither of your legs touch the floor. Continue alternating between top and bottom leg crossovers for the specified number of repetitions, maintaining control of your breathing throughout.
