How Do You Work Your Lower Abs?

To work your lower abdominal muscles, perform an exercise called scissors. This exercise involves raising and lowering one leg at a time.

  1. Lie on a mat

    Lie flat on your back on a mat and raise both legs straight up toward the ceiling.

  2. Lower your left leg

    With a slow and controlled motion, lower your left leg until it is around 6 inches above the floor.

  3. Do a crunch

    Contract your abdominal muscles to perform a crunch toward your raised leg.

  4. Switch legs

    Raise your left leg while lowering your right leg until it is around 6 inches above the floor. Crunch toward your raised leg. Repeat for 10 repetitions.
