Lose the Pooch: New Workout to Sculpt Lower Abs

Attachment-1 (1)

Alright, you guys asked for it so here it is, another Lose the Pooch Workout.  In case you missed the last one, you can CLICK HERE check it out.   Now, before I get started, you should know that the abs, or rectus abdominus, is actually all ONE muscle group that forms an “8-pack.”  So you can’t really work your lower abs without working your upper abs (and vise versa).

However, there are some exercises that really target the lower region of the abdominals.  I  selected a few of my favorites and effectively sequenced them to create the GRIT by Brit Lose the Pooch Workout.  For best results, complete this workout 2-3 times per week for 4 weeks.  Also, be sure monitor your diet by avoiding foods and habits that cause bloating (i.e. too much sodium and lack of water consumption).

Tighten that Tummy!  xoxo, Brit
