Perfect lower abs
What’s the toughest fat to lose according to you? Well I believe lower abs are really hard to get rid of and I am sure you too agree with me. Despite working out regularly and watching my diet, to some extent, I hadn’t been able to perfect my abs. Then on really researching a lot on this, I realized that for lower abs I need to follow a really strict diet with absolutely no sugar and really low carbs.
However, along with change in my regular diet plan, I also needed to focus on my lower abs while working out. I tried multiple workouts and made a note of workout that worked the best for me and I am sure will help you the most too. So here are the top 6 workouts to get faster results for lower abs, by fitness trainer Dubai. Finish 3 sets of these 6 exercises and see the impact.
