Cross-Body Scissors Will Cut You to The Core1 min read

These scissors will shred your abs

Cross-body scissors are an effective way to target your upper and lower abs as well as obliques all in one exercise.

To begin, lie on your back, (c’mon, you’ve done this before), with your hands behind your head and your legs flat on the ground. Perform a semi-crunch and lift both legs approximately one to two inches off the ground.

Complete this motion back and forth until failure.  Your goal should be approximately 50 repetitions.
