Abs is that one area of your body that oftentimes seems impossible to work enough on. You never skip the abs section and that coveted 6-pack is almost always elusive, right?

This is probably because you are skipping some of the basic abs exercises you can do at home.

Strong midsection is crucial as it leads to proper body alignment and better balance, but most people just can’t get their lower abs game to a higher level as the midsection is just so difficult to strengthen. Plus, this is where our body stores most of its excess fat.

In that name we give you 3 extremely easy but effective lower abs moves you can do in your own living room.

1. The Knee Tuck Plank

To do the Knee Tuck Plank you need to get into a plank position with your shoulders directly above your elbows, and your toes with your feet shoulder width apart. Now bring your left knee towards your left elbow and bring it back to the starting position (plank).

To make the move extra effective, try keeping your knee forward for about 3 seconds before bringing it back.

Do the same with your other leg. Do 2 sets of 10 reps.

2. Sliding Pike

For the Sliding Pike move you’ll need a towel ( Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy anyone?).

Keep your feet on a towel and come in a high plank position, squeeze your lower abs and pull your feet toward your hands. Your hips will go up in a pike position, activating your lower abs. Go back to the starting position by slowly pushing your feet out.

Do as many reps as you can.

3. Straight Leg Raise

Lie down on the floor with your hands under your lower back. Join your legs and lift them upwards until they are at 90 degrees. Now slowly bring them back down, nearly touching the floor.

Repeat 10 times.
