A lower-ab workout to get rid of the belly pooch

Do you want to get rid of the belly pooch? Do you want to wear those sexy bikinis to drive all men crazy? Do you want to be confident in yourself and not be ashamed of your body? It seems to us that you are now sitting and nodding your head “yes”, “yes”, “yes”, and if so, we have something super cool for you – a lower-ab workout to get rid of the belly pooch. It seems that dreams come true!

Our workout includes simple but effective exercises that will help you target the belly pooch. For sure you have read somewhere that leg lifts or leg holding poses are not as effective as other abs exercises, but it is not so, because these exercises are the easiest, most effective way to engage the lower part of your ab muscles.

By performing this lower-ab workout for 30 minutes 3 times a week, you will target your tummy and flatten your abs without doing “simple” crunches. To complete one set, repeat each exercise until you feel the real burn. Once you feel the burn do 5 more. Ideally, you will be working in the 20-30 rep range. Do 3-4 full sets of all exercises to complete your workout.

Do not forget to stick to a healthy diet, which consists of products that will help you burn fat and build muscle mass. Also, try to drink at least 8 glasses of water to speed up your metabolism. A combination of our workout and a healthy diet will give you incredible benefits in a short time. Just do it!

#1. Flutter Kick

Lie on a mat with your hands under your buttocks and raise your legs slightly, keeping knees straight and ankles together.
Keep abs engaged and perform short kicks in an alternating fashion.
Repeat as needed and then lower legs to the ground.

#2. Belly Lifts

My personal favorite abs exercise is the reverse press-up, because it targets the lower part of the transverse (deep) abs without any equipment.

To do it: Lie flat on back with both hands by your sides, palms facing down. Extend both legs up in the air above hips, keeping both knees slightly bent, feet flexed. Push upward with both feet at the same time, pressing heels toward the ceiling, lifting hips off the floor. Try for up to three sets of 15 reps.

#3. Marching Plank

This movement series is a progression of the basic plank hold. It strengthens the abs, lower back, shoulders, and glutes.

A. Assume low plank position. In “low plank,” your forearms are parallel to one another, and elbows are directly under the shoulders. Lift your body where only your forearms and toes are touching the floor.

B. While maintaining your plank, lift your right foot slightly off the floor. Try not to shift through the rest of the body. You will feel your abs FIRE to keep you stable! Put the right foot back down, and lift the left. Continue alternating the right/left hip extensions while holding an unwavering plank.

#4. Windshield

Set Up: Lie on your back with your arms extended as shown. Lift your legs so that your toes are pointing at the ceiling. With your lower back pressed into the mat, raise your butt slightly to engage your pelvic floor.

Action: Slowly lower your legs to one side, keeping your back planted on the mat. Return your legs to the center and repeat on the opposite side for one rep. Do 10 to 15 reps, and repeat twice for a total of three sets.

Tip: If you feel like you’re falling over as you move, you’ve gone too far; reduce your range of motion.
