Some exercises that target the lower stomach include the 90-degree static press and the hip lift. Exercisers should perform these in sets with 45 to 60 seconds of rest in between. Exercises should be performed on nonconsecutive days to allow the muscles to repair.
For the 90-degree static press, exercisers lie on their backs and bend the knees 90 degrees with the feet flexed. The lower back is braced and pressed on the floor, and the hands push on the thighs to create resistance. For the hip lift, both legs are raised to the ceiling while the arms are extended on the sides. With the stomach muscles tightened, the hips are raised off of the floor while exhaling.
