One of the most asked questions on discussion forums is which is the best lower ab workout. The truth is that there are not any exercises which train the bottom part of the abdomen separately. This section cannot be isolated, when you do regular abs exercises, the entire core is worked, as well.
Anyway, there are some drills which train this part a bit better than others such as different leg raises.
Usually, this part of the rectus abdominis can be seen finally because most of the belly fat can be found here and around the hips. If you want v-cut abs, you should reduce your body fat level under 10% if you are a man, and under 18% if you are a woman. You can achieve that with dieting and cardio. So, lower ab exercises can help to strengthen and tone those muscles, but weight loss is the key.
In my point of view, the best exercises for lower abs are the following: knee and leg lifting or bar, exercises with an ab wheel, various leg raising exercises on the floor.
Below you can find many workout routines that help to focus on that muscle group.
