Looking for a killer burn to sculpt and define your abdomen? Well it’s time you look… a little lower!
Your lower abdominal muscles slenderize your waist, minimize the “muffin top” and “love handles”, and add a “pop” to your stomach that definitely begs to be noticed. Unfortunately, they’re also the hardest to train. So many ab exercises we do focus primarily on the upper abs that often they over-power the lower abs and make it more difficult to train them effectively. Well not any more! Today I’m sharing 5 of my favorite exercises that target, train, and otherwise sculpt the lower abdomen. Try them out – I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Of course, we all know that “abs are [really] made in the kitchen”. You can’t out-workout a bad diet.

AND NOW ON TO THE WORKOUT!
One problem I often see with people trying to target their lower abs is that they’re doing a lot of sit ups and crunches. These are great, but to really target lower you need to be lifting your legs, not your torso. Check out these 5 exercises below to get a better feel of how it’s supposed to be done…
1. Reverse Crunch – 10 reps
Keep your back flat, stomach “sucked in”, and pull your bent knees up above your chest.
2. Double Leg Lift – 10 reps
Keep you back flat, stomach “sucked in”, and pull both straight legs up towards the ceiling.
3. Butt Raises – 10 reps
Lay on your back with your legs straight up towards the ceiling. Use your abs to lift your butt up off the floor and then slowly return it to the starting position.
4. Flutter Kicks – 10 reps
Keep your back flat, your stomach “sucked in”, and lower abs engaged while “fluttering”.
5. Side Double Leg Lifts – 10 reps each side
Can’t forget about the lower obliques! Smash out some side leg raises for an awesome “V-cut”!
REPEAT THREE TIMES!
Congratulations! You totally nailed it!
Work this into your regular routine to start seeing amazing progress with your abs in no time!
