If you’re looking to a unique lower ab workout, it’s about time you try this one out! The whole thing will be done standing up!
Remember, abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym. So make sure you’re not training them without doing the most important part. Take this body type quiz to find out what type of diet is right for you right now!
The truth is, your abs are being used all day long already. They are used to walk, stand, bend, twist.. move and you’re probably using them.
So overloading them with exercises that are similar to every day movement is great for strengthening your core. But these exercises will focus on the lower portion to try to make them look good at the same time.
Lower Ab Workout
For this lower ab workout, we will do 4 total exercises for 30 seconds. Then follow each exercise up with 15 seconds of rest. You will perform each exercise one after another. After all four exercises are completed, that will equal one round.
Aim for as many rounds as you can handle! Beginners, do at least 3 rounds. Intermediate, do atleast 5 rounds. Experienced, do at least 7 rounds.
For this exercise, you will be driving one knee up as high as you can. Then landing on it and driving the other knee up as high as you can. Then stick your hands out ahead of you with your palms facing down. And find a height to bring your knees up to each time. Do as many times as you can in 30 seconds.
Knee Rotation Hops
Here, you will be doing a single leg hops forward and out to the side. Starting with either leg, you will hop up and drive your knee up and then tap it to the front. Then you will hop up again, driving your knee up and tapping it out to the side. Do this for 15 seconds with each leg as many times as you can.
For this exercise, you will keep a narrow stance with your feet. From there, you will hop up and twist your feet to face as far to the side as you can. Then hopping up again, you will twist and turn your feet to the opposite side. Make sure to engage your core for the twisting. Repeat as many times as you can for 30 seconds.
Here, you are going to be acting like you are taking someone’s face and kneeing it hard. You will reach your hands forward, and pull your arms back while you drive your knee forward. Your hand and knee will meet out in front of you. Focus on using your core to get your knee up higher than you bring your hands down. Repeat as many times as you can with both legs for the 30 seconds.
Remember to do as many rounds as you can and push yourself! You can do this workout up to 3 times per week for additional calorie burn and to help your abs develop.
