How to Get Lower/Bottom Abs.

The human body is beautiful in all its shapes and forms, but there is something especially sexy about a well formed six pack. As it turns out, the bottom half of the six pack is the hardest part to get. So, here are some tips for developing your lower/bottom abs.

Lose the fat

The lower abdomen is where men tend to store fat hormonally. And it’s the last place that we lose it. This fat is incredibly stubborn – and even if your ab muscles are strong, even a small amount of fat will keep them hidden from view. To develop a leaner midsection:

  1. Strength train. Strength training is the best kept fat loss secret. When you strength train, you build muscle. And muscle incinerates calories – often causing a calorie deficit (more calories out than in) that helps people increase definition.
  2. Eat like a caveman. A healthy diet is key. Exercise is important, but don’t forget that nutrition is the other side of that equation. Lean meats, vegetables, nuts, berries, etc. should take center-stage in your diet. For more information about diet and eating like a caveman, check out my Eating for Fitness program.
  3. Interval train. Interval training is incredibly effective at helping people lose weight. It boosts the metabolism for hours and is several times more effective than running at a constant pace. Learn how to do it.

Increase the muscle

99% of unveiling your lower/bottom six pack is shedding the extra fat. But when the fat is gone, you’ll probably want your abs to pop. To that end, make sure you’re doing ab exercises that target that lower area. Exercises like leg lifts, weighted leg lifts and hanging leg raises will do wonders.

Here’s how to do a leg lift:

  1. Lie on your back on the floor.
  2. Extend your legs straight out and keep your arms at your side.
  3. Folding at the pelvis and keeping both legs together, lift your legs off of the floor.
  4. Lift your legs until they are perpendicular to the floor.
  5. Hold, then slowly lower.
  6. Repeat.

  9. Davey I just wanted to drop a note to say how inspirational you are to myself and I’m sure many others around the world.ive been following ur blogs for a year now ur YouTube videos funny and informative, reading ur bottom diet article reminded me of a time when I use to starve myself for two days in prep of meeting up with a guy a was seeing at the time and thinking this was just what I had to do.
    I’ve been with my now partner now 6 years and we are soon to be married in actually three weeks time. The similar thing I also learned throughout my time as a young man and being the receptive partner is that is that growing up I took sex far to serous and missed out in the joy of beeing spontaneous, I’ve had a couple of experiences that ended rather embarrassing.but when in a loving relationship you learn to laugh at the things that would other wise be horridly embarrassing. I guess this is when you now you are in true Love. I count myself lucky and special to have found a man that makes me feel this every day. Thank you for giving a voice to the Questions we all need to laugh and that less seriously.

  10. Every time I try to do leg lifts (or scissor kicks or anything like that), I end up hyperextending my lower back. I just can’t keep it flat on the ground. What should I do differently?
