The lower abdomen is a real trouble spot for many women. It can be difficult to tone the belly area, because most of the traditional abdominal exercises work on the upper abs and obliques.
But we’ve researched into exercises for flattening and toning your lower abs, and collected the 5 best workout moves for you here. Best of all, you can do them anywhere – no equipment needed!
- Lie down face up, keeping your hands by your side, palms down. Raise your legs, and bend at the knees to form a 90-degree angle; you can cross your ankles.
- Lift your hips straight up from the floor a few inches. This should be a controlled move, using your abs. Be sure to keep your back straight – you’re lifting your pelvis up, not rolling it towards your head. Exhale as you raise your hips, breathe in as you lower to complete one rep.
- Do 3 sets of 12-15 reps.
