10-Minute Lower Ab Workout!

Sculpting a strong, beautiful core is an amazing perk of following the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan. When you’re eating lean, clean, ‘n green with the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, your skin gets brighter, your hair becomes stronger, and your muscles — including your gorgeous abs — reveal themselves. And when you pair amazing nutrition with some booty kickin’ workouts, the results are seriously incredible.

We love focusing on the entire bod, but some days we feel like giving certain areas some extra love and attention. Your core is extremely important to all other muscles of your body. When you have a strong core, it keeps you balanced and helps you maintain better form during your Daily Moves. The lower abs are especially important for keeping proper posture throughout the day and standing tall and confident. If you’re looking for some extra lower ab toning, check out these three moves below!

Add this circuit into your normal routine 3-4 times a week. Go through the entire circuit 3 times.

Tuck Jumps

Workout of the Week: Tuck Jumps

Not only do tuck jumps tone your lower abs, but they also boost your metabolism to burn through abdominal fat even faster!
Start in a squat position with your arms behind you, making sure that your knees don’t go past your toes. Use your arms to propel you straight up into the air. Bring your knees to meet your elbows in front of your core. Land softly on your feet back in a squat position.
Do 15 reps.

Leg Raises

This move is key to toning your lower abs as well as your entire core.
Start laying on your back with your hands below your booty, legs raised a few inches above the ground. Keep your legs straight as you slowly raise them up as high as you can. Slowly reverse the move back to start.
Complete 20 reps.
Pro tip: Make sure your lower back is pressed down into the mat. When you feel your lower back begin to arch, your lower abs are no longer engaged.
