    If you want definition there, you need to GET LEANER, simple as that. Your genetics will primarily determine WHAT your abs will look like when you are leaner. That said, you can do your best to build up the muscle there, so they look as close as possible to what you want them to look like. Personal favourite "ab" exercises of mine include weighted crunches (either rope or DB), pikes, hanging straight-leg raises, etc. All the best!

    If you get lean and those lower abs still aren't showing...its most likely water weight which is a totally separate issue

    The key to targeting your lower abs is to bring your legs toward your torso, as with reverse crunches and hanging leg raises. If your lower abs are a weakness, try doing them first in your abs routine and increase the frequency of these workouts throughout the month.

    Thanks, hanging leg raises are a part of my workout, along with multiple other exercises I have been given and diet which is helping. Thankyou for advice

    Abs are generally considered 70 percent diet and 30 percent routine. Leg raises are great for lower abs. Throw some oblique work in for good measure to help get the look.

    No problem buddy. I trained for over a year and a half with a mediocore diet and never saw one ab tightened up my diet and a few weeks later i saw abdominal definition i never had regardless of the countless crunches and core work.

    Good luck!

    HI all
    Lower abs are too difficult to get and my suggestion is that swimming,running these games are for get lower abs and eat fresh fruits and fresh vegetables because they have many calories.
