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.
