How To Get V-cut Abs? 10 Best Exercises To Define Lower Abs
Posted on February 23 2022
ave you always yearned to achieve the coveted V-shaped midsection? The V-definition on the lower abdominals is a physical trait; that is eye-catching whenever you take your shirt off. It’s no longer enough to merely hit the crunches to accomplish the V-definition; you need to train your abdominal muscles in isolation to achieve that.
To achieve the V-cut abs, you need to incorporate exercises to train your external obliques, internal obliques, transverse abdominis, rectus abdominis, erectors, glutes, and all the muscles groups that make up the core.
And it’s not enough if you perform the exercises, you’ll need to dedicate yourself to a nutrition program, reduce the calorie counts, and should lower your body fat levels significantly enough to build those oblique muscles.
Below we have mentioned ab exercises that hit the core as a whole and target oblique muscles and help you build the ripped V-cut abs.
Perform each exercise for 15 counts with 30 seconds rest after each set.
