Abs of Your Life!
There’s probably nothing more frustrating and self-confidence-busting than that damn belly pooch which folds over the top of your pants when you sit down.
Without a doubt this one area most of my clients get incredibly worked up with and want to target their lower abs with everything they have.
With that said, it’s important to clear up a common misconception first. The lower part of your abs isn’t really a separate muscle. It’s actually part of the same muscle that extends from the top of your abs to your pelvis. But with the right exercises, you can definitely focus more on your lower abs while conditioning the entire muscle. And that’s what we’re going to show you how to do.
