Today we are going to concentrate on lower ab workouts as part of our core strengthening exercises. Below is a visual aid that shows the targeted muscles and lists off the exercises we will do to build muscle. Lower Ab muscles are one of the harder sets to work on. This is probably the last muscle group that you will see noticeable good definition. Whilst not all exercises below are to directly target the lower Abs, you should still perform them to keep a balanced core.
I am going to show some relevant videos to give you more of a view on how you can complete these lower Ab workouts successfully. Do them wrong and all you will gain is lower back pain.

This exercise plan is part of our core exercise workout set. Lower Ab Workouts form a key part of this. Core strength is a fundamental part of strength conditioning for all triathletes and one that you should definitely work on. It will help in all three stages of the race. Core strength really helps on the bike as you will spend a fair bit on time locked in the aero position.
Let us know if there is anything you feel we should add to this. There are a million exercises you can incorporate in your lower ab workouts but we feel these are the main ones to concentrate on. As always you perform these exercises at your own risk so be sure to work within your own boundaries and seek medical advise if you feel you have overdone it.
