How To Work Lower Abs - 5 Exercises That Will Get You Started

If you have been working for any amount of time on your abs, there is a good chance, that you have looked at how to work your lower abs. The lower part of your abdominal can be worked as effectively as any other part of your body, as long as you do the right exercises to isolate them.

How To Work Lower Abs

Here are 5 exercises you can take home that will do the trick!

1. Captain's chair

Stand up straight on the chair with your back pressed against the pad, grip the handhold, then contracts your abs and raise your legs while lifting your knees toward your chest.

While you do this, make sure you don't arch your back.

2. The bicycle abs exercise

The bicycle abs exercise

Lie flat on the floor, put your hands beside your head and bring your knees up to a 45 degree angle more or less then start pedaling like if you were on a bicycle.

3. Reverse crunch

The best way to do this is to first lay your back on the floor and place your hands on the floor along your body. Then flex your knees and slowly raise them towards your head while crunching your abs. Make sure to put all the effort into your abs and not your head, sometime people seem to be forcing more with their head then with their abs.

4. Lying leg raisers

Again here you want to lie flat on your back, but this time you want to have your hands underneath your bottom so you have a better balance and support. Once installed, squeeze your abs and lift your legs straight up and lower them down without touching the floor. Hold it for 2 seconds and repeat it.

5. Side turns

Lie your back on the floor with your feet up in the air. It okay if your legs are straight or slightly bent, what's important is that both your arms must be extended on the side with your hands touching the floor. Once you're in that position, slowly start swinging your pelvis and legs on with your feet together on one side, and as soon as you feel that your hand is lifting and not touching the floor, swing back to the other side.
