Being in good shape as well as having that great sexy body is what many people desire. Most often, people become discouraged because lower belly exercises are harder than eating a pack of donuts. The weight you put on from eating donuts, cakes, sodas, and other junk foods are so much harder to remove than to put on. And unfortunately you can’t just snap your fingers and have it all disappear.
Why Should I Perform Lower Belly Exercises?
The lower abdominal area is probably the hardest muscle to lose weight from and to tighten up. The only way to see results from stomach weight loss is if the rest of your body doesn’t have any fat. Typical workouts for the abdominal muscles are not as effective when you are trying to hit just the lower belly. But this time, there have been advancements in fitness that will help target the area. New Lower Belly Exercises have been adopted for the sole purpose of trimming down the lower belly. But keep in mind that diet plays a major role in cutting down overall body fat which will allow you to see your six pack abs.
A good lower belly exercise is the cycling exercise in which you should first lie down on your back with the legs being extended in a straight manner. Next, your fingers should be intertwined and hands are positioned behind your head. Lift both legs off the floor and the right leg needs to be bent and brought toward the chest. The elbow of your left arm needs to connect to the knee of the right leg. In a gradual manner, the right leg needs to be extended as well as to bring the left leg closer to your chest. You will alternate this movement as shown in the picture below. This exercise needs to be repeated at least 10 to 12 times on both sides.
Another exercise that is very effective is the plank. You need first to lie down on your stomach and your hands positioned lower than your shoulders. The toes should be curled under as well the heels should be off the ground. In a slow manner, lift your body with your hands at a straight position. The weight of your body should be well balanced between your hands and your toes. This position should hold for approximately 60 seconds before you release it.
Alternating Leg Walks
The last ab exercise to be presented would be alternating leg walks. On your back, place your hands under your butt as well as taking a few deep breaths. Next, you need to contract your lower belly muscles simultaneously with lifting your right leg on a slow manner until its position is accurately at 90 degrees to your body. After which, the leg needs to be lowered but not in contact with the floor with only a few inches of it. The right leg is also raised together with the previous step. The position of the legs should continue for about 8 to 10 minutes and then an additional 15 to 20 minutes as your lower belly becomes stronger.
