Targeting The Low Belly Muscles The Next Time You Hit The Mat
Whether you are a man or a woman, the likelihood that you want better-looking abs is pretty big. It seems that achieving the ultimate 6 pack is a goal many would love to have but few achieve. While it can be easy to make the upper abdominal muscles pop, it can be incredibly hard to get the lower abs to show themselves. Few people know that there are some major abdominal sculpting moves that take place on the yoga mat! These moves specifically target the low belly.
While almost every yoga pose requires your core, these moves target the muscles of the low belly.
This move begins in down dog with one leg lifted. As you breathe you begin to draw the lifted legs knee towards your nose and then straightening the leg back to its lifted position. It is a simple move that requires the low belly muscles to get on board and helps to strengthen them.
This pose begins from a standing position by gently lifting a leg as you tilt your body forward. In order to maintain your balance on one leg, you have to fire up the belly muscles to help provide some stability. An added benefit is that the legs get a pretty great workout.
This pose is similar to the Pilates V pose in that you are seated with the legs extended up towards the sky. Your abs are fully fired up here as you need them engaged in order to keep your torso upright!
These three yoga poses majorly target the low belly muscles and has added benefits for the rest of your body as well. Whenever you are trying to achieve a certain look physically it is best to remember to mix up your workout moves and to listen to your body. If for any reason you feel pain or discomfort when working out it is best to give your body a rest and try again at another time!
