How do you feel when those extra flabs surround your lower abdomen and does not allow you to pull off your favourite party wear dresses? You see it is not easy to get those lower abs so smoothly. You need to put yourself through intense heavy workouts.
As per a study, the best way to sculpt those lower abs is by doing exercises that involve your legs, hip flexors, and lower abdomen extensively. Get ahead with these six exercises:
Best Lower Ab Exercises
1. Mountain Climbing
Begin in a plank position, palms on the ground and arms straight right in front of you, right underneath your shoulders. Your legs should be positioned in a straight line. Keeping your back flat and your arms in the same position throughout, quickly tuck your right knee toward your chest, then jump it back to the ground as you simultaneously pull your left leg toward your chest.
Repeat this process quickly as many times as possible.
2. Lying Leg Raise
To create this posture, start by lying flat on your back with your hands underneath your glutes, palms down, and legs extended straight out in front of you. Lift your legs slowly off the floor until they form a perpendicular to the ground. Hold for a second, then bring them back down to the floor. To make the exercise more challenging, don’t let your feet touch the ground in between reps.
Start by lying on your back with both of your legs lifted so they are perpendicular to the ground. With both your head and shoulder blades lifted off the ground, bring your right leg down until it’s about six inches from the floor as you gently pull your left leg toward your body. Switch sides for one rep and repeat 10 times.
4. Dead Bugs
Start this move on your back with your arms at your sides. Lift your legs off the ground and bend your knees and create a 90-degree angle. Then, extend your right leg forward until it’s a few inches from the floor while extending your left arm straight behind you. Bring them back to starting position and repeat with the opposite arm and leg.
5. Reverse Crunch
This exercise just works wonders on your lower abdomen. Start by lying on your back, legs raised with knees bent at a 90-degree angle. Then, lift your lower back off the floor as you tuck your pelvis toward your belly button. Instead of relying on momentum by kicking your legs, keep it controlled so your abs do the work. Bring your body back down to the floor with the same control and repeat 10 times.
6. Bird Dog Crunch
In this position, your hands should be underneath your shoulders and your knees should be below your hips. Next, extend your right arm forward and your left leg back until they’re both parallel to the ground. Now, tighten your core and bring both your arm and leg in toward your body until your elbow and knee just about touch. Extend back out for one rep and repeat until you’ve completed a full set. After one set, switch sides.
