These exercises target your lower abdominal area. They’re also great way to strengthen your abs without getting your neck, back, and other muscles involved.
Mastering these techniques will help you get the most out of all other abdominal exercises you do. In fact, when you can do these with good form, you’ll be able to take on more challenging exercises (like the ones in my advanced abdominal exercise video) and avoid injury while you’re at it.
By the way, did you know there’s no such thing as “upper and lower abdominals”? The muscles attach the ribs to the hips and go side to side, up and down, and diagonally. But, we can choose exercises that focus more intensely on the upper or lower side of the muscle. That’s what we’re doing here!
