6 Easy Lower Abdominal Exercises
Tone your lower abs with a 15-minute workout, three times a week.
Sure, a more toned midsection can ease your bathing-suit anxiety.

To work this tricky-to-target area, try these moves created by Melissa Miller, the owner of M2 Personal Training, in Charlottesville, Virginia. Do the series two times through, three times a week.
