3 Flat Belly Moves

These exercises target the lower abs (rectus abdominus) in different ways. Best of all, there’s no equipment needed. Combined with proper diet and regular cardio, lower ab exercises can help you get that coveted flat belly. Over time, your strengthened core will allow you greater control as you perform the exercises.
