Wanting to learn lower abdominal exercises are a popular request that I get as a trainer. The first thing you need to know in your quest for gorgeous abs is that there are four components to achieving an enviable midsection. Many people mistakenly believe that, if only they could find that "magic" lower abdominal exercise, they could get rid of their stomach.

Food allergies are another common culprit for bloating and indigestion, which can make your lower abdominal region "pouch" out. If this is happening to you, no lower abdominal exercises will help until you address the bloating. The following eight foods account for about 90% of all food allergies:
