There are many people who want to know how to build your lower abs, and even why you should do so. Working on your core body makes a lot of sense as these muscles link the top and bottom parts of your body together. Your abdominal muscles, if they are used to exercise, will help to reduce back pain, and improve your posture as they help to stabilize and control the body.
Ok, so how do you build your lower abs? These are usually the less well developed abdominal muscles, since your mid section muscles are used constantly throughout a normal day of living and moving around.
Here are 3 exercises for your lower abs:
1. Lay flat on your back on the floor with your legs straight in front of you. Lift your legs so they make an angle of 45 degrees with the ground. Lower your legs, but do NOT touch the ground. Raise them again for 10 to 15 repetitions, and then rest.
While doing these. place your hands, palm down on your hip to thigh area. You want to make sure that it is your lower abs doing most of the work, not the hip flexor.
2. Continuing from above, put your hands behind your head and lift your head off the ground slightly. Bend at your knees, and bring them in towards your stomach, then kick them out again. Do not let your legs touch the ground. Repeat 10-15 times.
3. Again this is for your lower abdominal muscles, and follows on for the previous exercise. Bend your legs at the knees, and touch big toes together (your knees will be pointing outwards). With your head still slightly off the ground, and your hands behind it, rock backwards and forwards using your bum as the pivot. You should be able to feel your lower abs working, the exact place you are targeting.
Work on these lower abdominal exercises daily, and you’ll get in great shape. Your general health will be good, and your muscles will continue to support you and work for you whenever you want them to.
