Who doesn't want a flat belly? Excess fat on the lower abs looks very unattractive and prevents you from pulling off any outfit. To make matters worse, no matter how much you work on your lower abs, it seems to have no impact. For getting results specifically on this area, you need to train your whole body and pair it up with a balanced diet. Do remember that this is no excuse to miss out on the planks and crunches as these exercises are the key to strengthening your core. During the initial days, post routine hours can be very painful, it may even hurt when you laugh, so be prepared for that condition too.

Given below is a list of exercises for lower abs, the routine for which should be divided into 3 circuits, 30 seconds for each exercise and a 10 seconds gap after each exercise:
 

1. Heel trap

Lie down on your back, hands under the butt, knees bent and feet in table-top position. Lower your left leg till it barely touches the ground, bring your leg back to the same position and repeat the same with your right leg. Put pressure on your abdomen to raise your legs easily.


2. Mountain climber

Come to a high plank position, body straight to hip level, now lift right leg and bring it to your chest between both hands. Repeat the same with left leg. Now speed up the process and perform faster alternates while keeping your core tight. Cross mountain climber is another exercise for lower abs, lift right leg and bring it close to the left elbow and bring left leg to right elbow and continue alternating with both legs.
