Before exploring some very effective lower ab exercises you need to realize that if your diet and over-all exercise program are not getting rid of the fat covering your abdominals you'll never see them!
The exercises provided for you will help you develop the perfect 6 pack abs you want but you can’t forget about the rest of your muscles or your diet.
Even if you have the slightest amount of fat, neither you nor anyone you know will be able to see your well-developed abs.
Keep in mind however that these are not the only exercises that are effective - there are indeed many more.
Another point to keep in mind when it comes to the effectiveness of any lower ab exercises is that you must use strict form and you can't use the same ones over and over. Periodization of lower abdominal exercises is a must.
Here is a short list of some of the best lower abdominal exercises you should be using periodically in your exercise program.
The lower ab exercises you can find on the internet and in magazines is literally endless, but few that most people suggest you do, will actually work to sculpt your lower abdominals.
Hard work and dedication alone are not enough to produce the results most people are looking for from lower ab exercises - you have to follow a well-developed and clear plan.
Spot reduction of fat doesn't work and never will - it's a myth that is at the root of millions of fat loss and fitness failures.
If you or someone you know are regular exercisers but do not get results on a very regular basis it's probably because you fail to adhere to the number one rule of exercise results.
You have the proof, the evidence, and the motives, however, because most people have a hard time hearing the simplicity of the truth, they continue to choose the path of least resistance and follow the crowd.
Please don't be one of these people.
With lower ab exercises its just about knowing what to do when it stops working. Seems too easy right? It's the truth.
You need to know to do one of four things when results stop working. You need to decrease, increase, stop, or change.
Decrease and increase refer to the volume and frequency of your lower ab exercises.
When results stop or stagnate, you need to know whether to decrease
your sets or decrease your days per week. You may need to increase your
sets or days per week.
Maybe decrease or increase repetitions.
You may need to stop exercising for a short period of time when results stop. Maybe stop a certain exercise or program and change to another.
Maybe just change volume, sets, reps, programs, or fitness centers! It could be any of these scenarios or something similar. However, if results stop or stagnate, you must know what to do next.
If there was ever a so-called secret to exercise success, the rule of knowing what to do when results stop is it. You must know when and how to decrease increase, stop, or change. People fail to do this correctly with lower abdominal exercises and continue to see no change in their abdominal development.
