The side-lying leg adduction scissor is a dynamic core exercise that combines the isometric hold of a side-lying leg lift with leg adductions to further challenge the core and adductors. It targets multiple muscles of the core, primarily the rectus abdominis or "six-pack" muscles. It can be performed for time or reps in the ab-focused portion of any workout.
