How To Work Your Lower Abs

Step-by-step Instructions

Here is what you need to do...
Step 1

Hang from the pullup bar, leaving your hands about shoulder-width apart.

Step 2

Completely relax your lower back, arms, and legs.

Step 3

Take a deep breath and begin to raise your legs (keeping them straight)

Step 4

As you get halfway up the motion, bend your knees, and breathe out to contract the lower abs.

Step 5

Hold at the top of the motion for 1 second.

Step 6

Slowly lower your legs.

Special Attention

Difficulties people often experience or parts that need special attention to do it right.

Pay really close attention to the tenseness of your body. Are your legs straight? Are your arms relaxed? Do you feel a really tight pump after 15-20 repetitions? These are all things you should look for.
