Target your lower abs to finally get that 6 pack!! Ok, now that you've read the opening sentence and want to know how, I'm here to tell you to forget about it!! First, you can't really target "lower abs" Lower abs isn't even a muscle. The muscle at play (that's right, the 1 single muscle) when you see a six-pack is the rectus abdominis. You no more have a lower ab than you do a lower bicep or lower triceps muscle. When you contract your rectus abdominis, it contracts from top to bottom.
Six weeks from my fitness photo shoot, I was 178.5 lbs., around 12% body fat, and in decent shape, although not camera ready. By following a few steps outlined below, I was able to get those numbers down to 169.5 lbs. and 7.5% body fat in time for my shoot. If you are looking for some tips on how to do the same, read on.

As so many of you liked my recent post on weight lifting and how the media’s representation of it is wrong for women, I decided to do another post on the same topic. So these are my top ten reasons for women to lift weights…10 You will gain strength (without looking like Arnie)
Take care of your body it’s the only one you’ve got. I was recently in a car accident and it completely through off my journey to be healthier and happy. As a result of my injuries I had to stop exercising and I now rest the majority of each day. Additionally, because I can’t workout I’ve had to tighten up my diet and eat cleaner than before to prevent gaining weight from being sedentary. Being inactive is soooo unnatural for me!
