How to do Snow Angel

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Hard

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: abs, lower back, shoulders, glutes, quadriceps


Start by lying on your back with your legs flat on the floor and your arms down by your sides. Keep your lower back against the floor by engaging your stomach muscles. Then hover your feet just off the floor and sweep them out to the sides, staying close to the floor. At the same time sweep your arms out from your sides in a circle, close to the floor, until they are over your head.

Then return your arms to your sides and your feet back to the centre at the same time. Keep moving the arms and legs together as if you are making a snow angel except that your limbs are not touching the floor.
