Try this Secret for Toned Lower Abs

Today I am going to share a really cool trick for toning the lower tummy.

This Trick is kind of a “lost art”

Most people are getting it 100% wrong when they are trying to tone their tummy.

What You Need to Know About a Toned Lower Tummy

When your lower tummy muscles are weak the whole area sags.

To have a tight, toned lower tummy you need to strengthen and tone your lower abs.

People are Getting their Abs workout WRONG

Most people try to focus on holding in their tummy when they do abs.

Focussing only on the tummy, no matter how hard you squeeze, is not going to help target your lower abs for toning.

Doing ab exercises without “engaging your core” the right way also puts far too much pressure on your spine, back, hips and neck.

No amount of crunches or cardio will tighten and tone the abs unless you are consistently engaging your CORE the right way.

The Secret to Toning your abs is what I call the “Inner Abs Lift”

Great News: You don’t need any special equipment at all to train you lower core.

You can work on your Inner Abs Lift anywhere.

More Great News: Once you start practicing this regularly your “Inner Abs Lift” will become automatic.

You will be tightening your tummy 24/7- you gotta love that 🙂

How to do an “Inner Abs Lift”

  1. Lay flat on your back- wrists in line with your shoulders and heels – feet slightly apart
  2. Tilt your pelvis (front hip bones) back slightly so there is NO arch under your back
  3. BREATHE in and pull your tummy in tight but do not let your rib cage expand
  4. As you EXHALE – Imagine you are trying to stop yourself from doing a pee and you are pulling that area up towards your belly button.
  5. Keep that lift going all the way up to your tummy like you are doing up a zipper.The lift starts in your pelvic floor and zips up to your tummy.

    I
    t is subtle and you should be able to breathe normally.

  1. Lay flat on your back- wrists in line with your shoulders and heels – feet slightly apart
  2. Tilt your pelvis (front hip bones) back slightly so there is NO arch under your back
  3. BREATHE in and pull your tummy in tight but do not let your rib cage expand
  4. As you EXHALE pull up thru your pelvis floor (keep your tummy pulled in and at the same time imagine you are stopping a pee and pull upwards) and lift hips off floor – there should be no pain in your back

 Its subtle and you should be able to breathe normally.

  • Hold the bridge lift for 4 counts – your knee – hip bone and shoulder should all be in a straight line.
    If you are engaging your CORE and pelvic floor there should be no pain in your back.
  • LOWER and Repeat 4 more times

Once you have the hang of Your Inner Abs Lift Use it in every part of your workout

Every time you workout with weights you should ENGAGE your Inner Abs Lift.

Do your Inner Abs Lift on the EXHALE – the HARD part of the exercise.

Example: when doing a BICEP curl

  • Stand tall – arms by your side straight – shoulders back – looking forward
  • Breathe in and pull your abs in TIGHT
  • As you EXHALE keep tummy pulled in and engage your Inner Abs Lift as you pull up thru pelvic floor and curl weights up

When you do this correctly

  • You will feel ZERO pain in your back/hips
  • you will feel super stable and not sway
  • you will feel all of your stomach muscles ENGAGE
  • you will find you are stronger

TIP: Too often we UNDER USE our core (stabilising muscles) and OVER use our GLOBAL muscles (big muscles that overcompensate when our core is weak) 

This then creates a pulling action against the spine and pelvis causing strain and pain and prolonged aggravating injury.

Sitting for long periods of time without engaging our core can also lead to compression of the spine creating inflammation and pain.

Treating the painful areas only gives short term relief.

To stop the pain effectively and to really tighten and tone your tummy add your Lower Abs Lift in everything you do and get it to a point its strong enough so it switches on automatically.

Its takes practice but it is worth it, Vix
