What exercises can I do for the my lower abs?  I do crunches  that have helped my mid-torso area but that doesn't do anything for that 'below the belly-button' baby fat area.

Hello everyone. I am new to IVillage and look forward to meeting everyone and contributing to the Boards.  Regarding lower abs, I find reverse crunches to be very helpful.  As always diet plays a significant role in sculpting this area.  By accident I discovered yoga is great for abs as a whole.  I wasn't feeling well right before the holidays and couldn't go to the gym.  I started doing a little yoga everyday and to my surprise it helped carve by abs!

Lay on your on your back with your legs stretched out on the floor. Put your hands on your sides and rest your head on the floor. Now all you have to do is lift your legs to a 45 degree angle of the ground and then bring them down again, but make sure not to rest your legs on the floor. Repeat this movement for 10 - 15 repetitions and then rest your legs back on the floor.
