Workouts for Women – Lower Ab Exercises

A few weeks ago I started making a series of training videos dedicated to creating workouts that trouble women the most.  It’s no surprise to me that requests for ab workouts starting popping up in the comments and emails.

Lots and lots of ladies wanted a workout for their lower abs.  Some asked for exercises specifically for their lower abs because crunches aren’t cutting it.  Some straight up wanted to know ‘How can I lose my pooch?’  And that’s exactly what I’m going to teach you today.

How to Exercise the Lower Abs

The term “lower abs” is kind of misleading because the muscles in the lower section of your core (aka the rectus abdominis muscle) actually covers the entire ab areas… it just so happens to connect to your pelvis.  Because your legs are also attached to your pelvis – and because your legs make up about 40% of your body weight – the absolute best ways to target the pooch area is to lift and lower your legs…

Holding your legs up off the ground and pushing them upwards automatically engages the lower portion of your abs and you don’t need any fancy equipment to get results.

Do you have a pooch of fat on your belly that you’d like to lose?  Then you’re going to love today’s episode of CCtv. In it, I share today’s lower ab workout and explain how to lose your pooch.  Check it out below.


How to do this Lower Ab Workout

There are 6 exercises targeting the lower abs in this workout.  You’ll need to do each exercise until you ‘feel the burn’ and once you feel the burn do 5 more.  You need to do each exercise one time to complete 1 ‘round’ or set.  You need to do 3 full sets of each exercise to complete your workout.

I recommend doing this workout at least once a week… along with another full ab workout.  (I have tons of those for you here.)  If you train this area consistently you will build lean muscle in that area.

This workout targets the muscles in the lower ab area.  But you can’t spot train to reduce fat.  If you want to lose fat from your abs, this workout isn’t going to do much if you’re not following a meal plan, cardio, and full body weight training program that’s a good match for your body type and goal look.

If you truly want to lose weight and improve your health and confidence join my Total Transformation Challenge.  You’ll get noticeable results in DAYS not weeks!!  Guaranteed.

It only works if you work it, so work it.  YOU are so worth it!

    The lower abs are the hardest to target! I’ve been trying for 2 years to no avail. I would get good progress for about 2 months and then go on vacation and have 5000 cheat meals and no exercise and then having to start all over again! These exercises are great because I don’t need to go to the gym, I can just drop down to the floor when I remember to! Haha. Saving this as my wallpaper. Thanks!
