Show off the 6-pack: How to make your lower abs show.

It’s summertime which means you’ll want to hit the beach and show off that six-pack you’ve been working on for the past few months. But if your midsection isn’t ready yet, chances are it’s because of one area and one area only: The lower abs.

You’ve been working hard doing your crunches to get that six-pack you’ve always dreamed of, only to look at your abs and see nothing. But you can’t make the v-line of your dreams by doing the same old exercises. You need to switch it up.

4 simple rules to get your lower abs to show

Drop 500 calories from your daily intake

To truly get that V-line to show, you need to get lean. Your midsection will always be hidden behind a layer of fat, regardless of how many core exercises you do. You’ll never see your lower abs if you’re carrying too much body fat.

The best way to drop fat is to create a caloric deficit:

  • Eat fewer calories than you burn per day.
  • Track precisely how many calories you’re consuming using a food journal for just a few days
  • Drop 500 calories per day from your diet —that should be enough to boost your fat loss and melt the fat around your mid-section.

Check in on your body fat every two to three weeks to ensure it’s moving in the right direction.

Boost testosterone with heavy, compound exercises

Research suggests that a disproportionate amount of body fat around your lower abdomen is related to low testosterone levels. To stimulate muscle growth and unleash a massive hormonal response, you need heavy, total-body lifts in your workout. Heavy strength exercises also speed up your fat loss, which will reveal your lower abs faster.

Go as heavy as you can while using a flawless form. Include lots of heavy squats, deadlifts, lunges, barbell presses (bench or military), and heavy rows. Incorporating between 4 – 8 repetitions for 3 – 5 sets into your workout routine will help.

Eat carbs on workout days only

Starchy carbohydrates like rice and potatoes can actually be great when leaning out—if you eat them at the right times, that is. Save your carbs for the days you hammer your muscles with heavy, complex exercises. This way, you’ll ensure that your body uses that energy specifically for recovery and muscle growth.

Don’t even think about cutting out carbs completely. It will work against you. Carbs give you the fuel you need to build muscle, melt fat, and target your abs; without them, your workout performances will suffer.

Do the right core exercises

You still need direct ab exercises to get the serious definition of your lower abs that you’re looking for. But not every core exercise emphasises your lower abs—some focus on your obliques. In contrast, others isolate just the top part.
