Get Rid of Your Lower Belly Pooch Workout

Look long, lean, and toned.

Lower belly pooches: everyone has one, yet not everyone’s shows. Lower belly pooches become more pronounced for several reasons. You can have excess fat, you might have some bloating that extends the belly region, or it can just bad posture that pushes out the lower belly. Whether your pooch comes from one or all of these, we’ve created this lower belly pooch workout for you.

The workout is meant to help you tone the lower abs while losing fat. Additionally, strengthening abs can help improve posture, and the superman move will help you stretch your core and hip flexors, which can help you stand up straighter and give you that long and lean look. Finally, working out kickstarts your metabolism and gets you sweating, which might help reduce stubborn bloating.

So if you’re ready for the flat stomach, get started with this lower belly pooch workout!

  2. Hi will this work with people who had a hysterectomy I’m finding it hard to lose the pouch after my surgery do you have any suggestions on how to lose it

    1. Shellie, It should help but keep in mind that what you eat and drink has a big effect on belly fat. Eat clean and lean and do this workout and I think you’ll be surprised with the results. 🙂

  3. I can’t do a lot of these ab workouts because they put pressure on my neck and I have degeneration, disc narrowing, arthritis and a bone spur. What other excersize can I do for the little pouch of belly fat I have to get rid of it? I am eating clean and have lost 5 lbs. I am not heavy to begin with, I am 56 years old and just want to get rid of that tummy pouch. Thanks.
