I personally struggle with this area. It’s no secret that body fat tends to accumulate significantly around the waistline in comparison to other areas of the body. But there are a few practices that you can incorporate to help burn fat and develop and define your lower abs.
Considering that nutrition is imperative for making your abs visible, eating healthy is important. You have to eliminate that lower belly pouch before you can notice your lower abs. Lean meats, poultry, almonds and other nuts, green vegetables like spinach, various types of berries and beans, peanut butter, and whole-grain breads all help fight belly fat.
Cardio is another significant component in targeting belly fat. Running, walking, biking, and other mid-to-high intensity cardio workouts for at least 30 minutes a day can cut belly fat. If you’re pressed for time, the 30-minute sessions can be split into three 10-minute sessions throughout the day.
Lastly, it’s important to perform effective lower ab exercises to help sculpt that lower mid-section. I’ve found that workouts such as planks, reverse crunches, flutter kicks, torso twists, and mountain climbers are great for your lower abs.
Check out a couple exercises below that will help cut fat and target your lower abs.
