One area that seems to need endless exercise is the lower abs area (the middle and the lower end of the fabled “six-pack”). This happens because, even if the muscles in that area are very well toned, they are usually hidden by a consistent layer of fat.

The lower abdomen is where the female body starts storing fat, and it is also the last place the fat will disappear from. Most fitness trainers use the expression “the abs are made in the kitchen” because you can only lose the excess fat in that area if you keep a proper diet. Exercises alone will never burn that fat off.

In this article, we will take a look at 10 core-strengthening exercises. Working the core is the right way to make those lower abs show, while improving your balance and reducing lower back pain. Do each exercise for 30 seconds, and rest for ten seconds between exercises. Then, after you’ve completed the whole cycle, start again from the top for another one or two rounds.
