If you want to get rid of your lower belly pouch, then it's going to take a healthy dose of exercise and clean eating, but not just any ab exercises will do.
"Many traditional core exercises like crunches neglect the lower abs, so make sure you include lower abdominal exercises in your routine for best results," says Coach Joshua Kozak, founder of HASfit. "Don't forget that working your core isn't a replacement for a healthy diet because fat must be lost equally over the whole body."
This effective six-minute workout can be done from home or the gym.
Sprinters 4 x 30 seconds: Start by sitting on the ground with your legs out in front of you and lean back on a 45-degree angle. Bring one knee up and keep one leg straight up off the ground. Bend both arms until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle. Alternate kicking one leg out straight and while bringing the other knee up. At the same time rotate your arms at the shoulders in a running motion.
Leg Raise + Hello Dolly 4 x 30 seconds: Lie flat on your back with your hands under the small of your back. With your legs straight, raise them up off the ground to a 45-degree angle. Open your legs and then close them. Lower them to three inches above the ground and then repeat.
Reverse Lift Crunch 4 x 30 seconds: Lie flat on your back with your hands out to your side. Raise your legs straight until they are perpendicular to the ground. Next, use your abs to raise your hips up off the ground while reaching for the ceiling with your feet. Control your hips as you lower them back down to the ground.
