Lower abs are the muscles located in your midsection. Simply, it is the part of your abdomen that you see when you lean your neck forward.
A fitness enthusiast, who writes for fitnessgoals.com, told me once that virtually all women are in pursuit of training exercises to help them acquire a leaner middle. Unknown to most of them, for noticeable results, you have to find moves that focus mostly or entirely on the core. Being prepared emotionally and mentally also works for the good.

The best thing about lower abs workout is that you can do it with or without any equipment wherever you want to do it. In addition, they can also be combined with strength training routines such as weight lifting and dumbbell workouts.

All lower abs workouts do not yield similar results
Truth be told, these workouts do not yield the same results. Some are more effective than others. Here are the top 3 lower abs workouts that should do it for all women.

1. All directions leg lifts (upper body on elbows)

Assuredly, this won’t be easy. The results are great, however.

Here’s how you should do it:

Lie in a flat position. Raise your upper body so that the elbows are supporting it. While in this position, your upper body and neck should remain straight; palms should be lying flat on the floor. Ensure that you are taking deep breaths.

Bend your knees upward towards the right. Hold this position for a few seconds. Lower the legs to original position and then bend your knees towards the left. Hold this position for a while and lower them back to the original position. Finally, bend your knees in a straight direction (towards your head), hold and then lower them back to original position. These movements should complete one rep - 15 to 20 should be enough.

To amp up this workout procedure, you could fasten dumbbells on your legs. Extending your legs out further or just doing more reps should also do it.

2. Leg pulls on chin-up bar

Chin-up bars are one of the most affordable and effective ways to work out. Luckily, their usefulness can be incorporated to lower abs workout for women.

Here’s the procedure:

Grab a chin-up bar ensuring that your body remains straight from head to toe.

Lower your feet back to original position. Repeat the steps 10-15 times. This completes one set; 2 to 3 should be enough. Do not get discouraged if you cannot complete even a single set on the first attempt.

While on this position, grab a dumbbell on each arm. Lift them simultaneously in an up-down direction for about 2 minutes. Repeat this for
