Want gorgeous abs that you can flaunt once you hit the beach? Put some action in your lower abs and exercise your lower abs today. Keep in mind, though, that in order to get great abs, you’ve got to commit yourself to a good overall workout and a healthy diet as well. If you’re already doing those, then you can start focusing on your lower abs for a more shapely body that really shows off your muscles.
Rotate Supine Leg Walks
Lie on your back on an exercise mat. Place your hands under your buttocks, palm-side up. Lift one leg up as high as you can, making sure that the leg is straight but not strained. The leg should be high enough that you should be feeling tension in your midsection or your lower abs. Lower your leg a little and lift it again as before. Do the same for the other leg.
Alternating Supine Leg Walks
A variation of the exercise mentioned earlier, alternating supine leg walks also requires you to take the same position as the first one. Lie down on your back on an exercise mat and have your hands supporting your buttocks. Lift your legs together until they are vertical to the ground. Then slowly lower them back again until your toes are just a little bit above the ground.
Raise them again back to the vertical position. Alternate putting one leg down, and then the other. Raise both legs again. Tighten your midsection while doing this exercise.
Lie on your back and put your hands under your buttocks to support them. Lift your legs as high as you can and then bend them at ninety degrees, with your knees a little way from the ground. Then bring your knees up to your chest, or as near to your chest as you can. Again, there should be tension in your lower abdominal section.
Lie down on your back, with your buttocks supported by the palms of your hands. Keep your feet together and slowly raise them up until they are vertical to the ground. Then slowly put your legs back down until they are parallel to the ground. Do not put your legs down! Hold them in place for a few seconds and raise them back up again.
These lower abdominal exercises should be integrated with your overall exercise routine. Do them every other day and mix it up with other routines as not to cause injury. Make sure that you have a proper exercise mat. If you have a back injury, make sure that you check first with a doctor before attempting these exercises.
