If you have equipment, then it would be hanging leg raises. If you don’t, then it is standard leg raises. Just be careful of your lower back.

lay on ur back, lift both feet off the ground and hold it there, for the count of twenty, then put one leg up, count to 20, both up count to 20, the other down, count to 20, both up, count to 20, then pretend ur walking and flutter ur feet for twenty, also v-sits will help, this is where u lay on the ground, and bring ur arms and legs up into the shape of a v, resting ur body weight only on ur butt, hope that helps

Ab workouts will not help to lose your belly. What you are trying to lose is fat. The only way to do that is to burn off more than you are eating. You have to make your body us it.
Yes, working out will help burn the fat off but working out will work the muscle not the fat. Walking, running, jumping rope or riding a bike is the best things you can do alone with the best thing which is diet. Your body stores fat if it doesn’t use all you eat. You have to give it a reason to use it and stop taking in more than it needs.

well i do this every morning and it works its kinda sore when you are a beginner…sit on a flat surface with your legs bent(they must still be on the floor though) fall very slowly on the floor, when you’re half way there stop and count to like 15 and the next day 20 and you can go higher or stick to the same numbers….or you can do ordinary sit-ups

AFTER A WARM UP:

USING AN EXERCISE BALL

V-PIKE PRONE AB CRUNCH (3 SETS OF 10)

• LIE FACE DOWN (PRONE) ON THE BALL WITH YOUR HANDS ON THE FLOOR FOR STABILITY

• BEGIN WITH THE BALL POSITIONED AT THE UPPER THIGH WITH YOUR LEGS EXTENDED

• SLOWLY ROLL THE BALL UNDER YOUR BODY WITH HIPS MOVING UPWARD BRINGING FEET CLOSER TO ARMS

• KEEP LEGS STRAIGHT. ONCE IN A V POSITION, PAUSE AND SLOWLY ROLL BACK TO PRONE

USING AB STRAPS

HANGING LEG RAISES (3 SETS OF 15)

• HANG FROM STRAPS WITH UPPER ARM PARALLEL TO THE GROUND. LEGS ARE EXTENDED.

• BEGIN BY LIFTING KNEES UP TO CHEST, PAUSE AND SLOWLY RETURN TO EXTENSION

• DO NOT SWING. LOWER YOUR LEGS SLOWLY, WITH CONTROL

• THIS EXERCISE CAN ALSO BE DONE WITH A TWIST AS YOU RAISE YOUR LEGS TO WORK THE OBLIQUES

WORKING THE OBLIQUES

SIDE LYING LEG LIFTS ON FLOOR (3 SETS OF 15 ON EACH SIDE)

• START ON THE FLOOR, ON YOUR SIDE; PROP YOURSELF UP ON YOUR ELBOW. KEEP OPPOSITE HAND ON THE FLOOR BEHIND YOU FOR BALANCE.

• WITH LEGS EXTENDED, LIFT BOTH UPPER AND LOWER BODY AT THE SAME TIME, CREATING A SIDE LYING V. LOWER YOUR BODY SLOWLY.

• REPEAT ON THE OTHER SIDE

After this lower ab exercise workout it is a good idea to stretch the low back with a simple knee to chest stretch. Hold each stretch for 30 seconds. It is also a good idea to train your abs last in your workout. To minimize the risk of injury always perform this lower ab exercise workout at the very end of your exercise session.

get an exercise ball, and do the ab exercises that they give you. also crunches will work, just do a lot of them!

Hanging leg raises. Not knee raises alone, but keep your legs pointed straight below you, then bend at the hips and fold in half, your feet pointing straight at the ceiling as much as you can. Repeat that as many times as you can, shooting for 25 reps in a set, and 3 sets. That will nail your lower abs.

Straight leg raises are the best. Reverse crunches also target the lower abs. Don’t forget that by exercising the obliques muscles you pull the midabdominal muscles taught and get that flat appearance to your abs
