How To Get A V Cut In Your Lower Abdominal Muscles
Are you one of those who look at other people’s V cut abs with seething envy. You don’t need to be. With some hard-core abs workout and zealous dieting you can also get the V cut of your dreams
You can strengthen your abs and add definition to your V cut by implementing the following varied routine for lower abs. These exercises are also helpful for reducing the pain in the lower back. Take a look at our example.
#1. Lying Leg Raises (4 sets x 15 reps)
Lie on your back on an exercise mat (or soft ground). Wedge your hands under your butt. Slightly raise your shoulders and feet off the floor (keep a slight bend in your knees) – that’s the starting position. Using your abs, raise your legs to approx. 30 degrees. Keep the rest of your body steady. Then slowly lower your legs back to the starting position (don’t let them touch the floor). Repeat until you complete your reps
#2. Hanging Leg Raises (4 sets x 15 reps)
Just as it was the case with the previous exercise, the movements should be executed slowly. Make sure that your legs are straight. If you find this exercise too easy, you can add some difficulty by holding weights between your feet.
#3. Reverse Crunches (4 sets x 15 reps)
Lie on your back with your arms straight out to the sides. Lift your legs and bend the knees at a 90-degree angle. Rotate the hips to one side, without letting the legs touch the floor. Lift your legs and return to the starting position. Rotate the hips to the opposite side and repeat until set is complete.
#4 Ab V Hold (4 sets x 1 minute hold)
Lie with your back on a mat, and extend your arms overhead and your legs in front of you with your feet together (A). In one movement, contract your abs, pull your legs up, and touch your toes (B). Exhale as you contract, and keep your feet together throughout the move. Release back down with control. That’s one rep. Immediately contract back up, and complete the recommended number of reps for each set

Reducing the Body Fat
The Golden Formula of Abs
Diet + Ab Exercises + Cardio exercises = Dream Abs
To get the abs you want you can’t just perform ab exercises you need to include cardio as well ( running, jumping roping, cycling and other cardio exercises). So do you need to perform a thousand core exercises or do you just need a few? How long do you need to perform cardio exercises for an hour or a few minutes? It all depends on you, how committed you are, but there are a couple rules that you need to follow to get the results you want.
The core muscles need to be worked on throughout the day. (If you’re in a rush to get results as soon as you can, its best that one day you work on upper and lower abs, and the next day work on your sides.
The diet before and after training is the most important (before training should provide enough power to the body, and after training enough protein to build muscle.)
Its best is to continue working on your abs even on days they are achy. Don’t stop working out just because you muscles are sore. (The abdominal muscles are extremely durable and when you feel pain should continue to exercise, because then the exercise has the strongest effect. Of course, when the pain becomes too strong take a break to avoid injury.)
Once you have finished working on your abs, you need to do a series of lower back exercises. (You should do a series of back exercises so you dont suffer from spinal deformation).
You can modify and combine exercises (For any muscle group, especially the stomach, it is important to work the different training if you do the same exercises for months, you will get used to them and they will no longer be effective. )
