The lower abdominals are an often neglected part of the mid-section, and so they don’t always get the attention they deserve in most off-the-shelf workout plans and fitness regimes.

Add to this the fact that for most folks, getting rid of those last few pounds of stubborn lower belly fat is often the stumbling block to getting those ripped, firm six pack abs…then obviously, we need to take a more serious look at good lower ab exercises.

Why Crunches Don’t Work For Lower Abs

Now, don’t get me wrong…I like crunches as much as the next person, but they are not the be-all and end-all of abdominal exercises. Crunches have a limited range of movement involving your upper body, and therefore tend to tone and work the upper abdominals more specifically.

To work your lower stomach muscles you need to create a level of stretch that a normal crunch performed on a mat on the floor simply won’t achieve…and don’t even ask me about ab rollers!  :)

Utilizing your legs in your lower abdominal exercises is really the key to toning those lower stomach muscles. Simple things like leg raises (on ground or hanging - hanging are tougher), and air bicycles (lying on your back with legs in the air moving in a cycling motion), are great home ab exercises for your lower abs, if you can’t make it to the gym.

3 of the best lower abs exercises are:

1. Reverse Crunches

2. Roll Out (using an exercise ball)

3. Reverse Ball Crunches (using an exercise ball)
