Lower belly fat is one of the more common problems, especially as you age, because of the way our bodies store fat. If you want a flatter stomach, and you’re struggling to lose the lower belly pooch here’s what you’ll need to do.
Three Rules To Lower Belly Fat
I wish it were as simple as “do this one thing” and your lower belly fat will be gone. But it actually requires a combination of three different steps.
Lower Abdominal Exercises
The muscle you’ll want to target is the transverse abdominis, commonly called the lower abs. When well toned, and developed it helps with core strength, posture, and flattening your lower belly.
So if you want to “lose the pooch” on your lower belly, this is where you’ll want to focus.
Abs Are Made In The Kitchen
While targeting the lower abs through exercises will suck in your gut, and tighten your core, you’ll struggle to lose belly fat if your diet is incredibly poor.
It will feel like you’re swimming upstream, working hard in the gym without making much progress if you don’t also make some diet changes.
If you want a flatter belly, and less lower belly fat you’ll need to avoid some of the following:
High sugar foods
Total Body Cardio
The last element of lowering belly fat is total body cardio. Ab exercises are intended to tone, and strengthen but most won’t have enough intensity to remove belly fat on their own. Including 2-3 total body cardio sessions per week will dramatically speed up results.
Here’s some cardio workouts you can try:
