Lower Ab Drills at Home

If you've been working towards the six pack for a while now, you must have realized that the last two are the most difficult to build. Personally, I was stuck with the four-pack for a really long time, which got me really disillusioned. But eventually, I worked my way down to the last bit of fat on my body and burned it down with a very dedicated approach to abdominal exercise! The lesson to be learned here is that anyone can get six pack abs. It just needs a lot of dedication and motivation. Always focus on the end result. This will help you fight the temporary disillusionment, which settles in between the fourth and sixth pack. After all, you're almost there!

Lower Ab Workout Routine

Here are a few lower ab workout exercises, which will complete the six pack you've always wanted! And over all this, these lower ab lessons at home will give you a six pack without having to go to a gym!

Leg Raises
This exercise is simple and straightforward. Lie flat on your back. Lift your legs up so that they are perpendicular to the ground. Now lower the legs down and lift them up again. If you find this exercise too tough, then bend your knees and then do the same workout. To increase the difficulty level of this workout, you could lie with your back flat on a bench, with your hips off the bench and then do the leg raises. You can do these leg raises in 3 sets of 15 reps each.

Hanging Leg Raises
For this lower ab workout, you have to hang on to a suspended bar. Then you have to lift your legs up from the hips, so that they are parallel to the ground. Again, if you think this exercise is too difficult, then you could bend your knees and then do the workout. You can do this exercise in 3 sets of 15 reps each.

Raised Leg Crunches
In this exercise, you have to lie flat on your back and keep your legs raised, perpendicular to the ground. Then you do the normal crunches. This exercise workout helps the upper as well as the lower abs. You can do this exercise in 3 sets of 15 reps.

Floor Cycling
This is one of the best lower ab exercises for women, at home. In this, you have to lie flat on your back with your legs suspended and your knees bent. You have to move your legs, as if you are cycling. Then you slowly crunch your upper body, with your hands behind your head. The trick here is to coordinate the body movement in such a way that the right elbow touches the left knee while crunching and vice versa. You can do this exercise in 3 sets of 20 reps.

Remember, if you want a six pack, only doing abdominal exercises is not enough. You also need to do cardiovascular exercises and follow the abs diet. Also do the lower ab stretches at home before starting your workout. Only then you will get your just rewards!
