Learn which lower belly moves can get you the abs of your dreams!
Targeting your lower belly muscles can be tricky, since most common exercises (such as squats, lunges, running, and bicep curls) don’t target the lower stomach. Even though common ab exercises built strength, most of them engage the upper ab muscles, so the lower belly pooch stays put. However, these aren’t your everyday ab exercises. Try these fun lower belly moves, so you can get strong, firm, toned abs.
