    I was a former fat kid. My body is now lean but the one thing that keeps me eating low calories is that my lower abs hang because theres no more fat there. Its been like that for a good ten yrs. I decided instead of trying to get rid of it i want to add muscle to that area so it can fill in where fat used to be and be solid. Anybody here experienced this and had success?

    I was in your position growing up so I know what it's like to be overweight. I would try the exercises below! icon_biggrin.gif

    Reverse crunch

    A reverse crunch is similar to the crunch exercise but only opposite. Instead of raising your chest up you lift your knees towards your chest. The reverse crunches should also be done in twenty repetitions with a two second hold on each. Reverse crunches should cause you to feel more stress in your lower abs since this is the area that you will be working on.

    Double crunch

    This exercise is the crunch and reverse crunch brought together into one exercise. Lying on your back you should bring you hips and chest together by lifting your head and knees together simultaneously. This exercise should be done with ten repetitions and holding each for two seconds. This exercise works both the upper and lower abs.

    To really build muscle you will have to incorporate weights.

    The Double Crunch described above is excellent, I do them with weights on My chest and ankles.

    Same for side planks.

    A simple push up, a proper push up is a much better abdominal core exercise than a crunch!

    Reverse crunch is indeed the best exercise for it
