How To Perform Exercise

The flutter kick exercise works and strengthens the hamstrings and the muscles on the back of the thigh.

Steps :

1.) Start off in a prone position on the floor, resting your forehead on your hands that are out in front of you.

2.) While keeping both legs straight, raise one leg off the floor a few inches, lower and repeat on the opposite side.

3.) As you feel more comfortable with the movement, you can pick up the speed slightly, so you're not resting between reps. It should look similar to how your feet move up and down while swimming.

4.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) Keep your back straight throughout this exercise and hips in contact with the floor.
