Lie flat on your back and lift your legs into a table top position (legs at 90 degrees).
Practice lowering one leg to the floor at a time – begin with bent knees and if/when your lower back is strong enough, progress to straight leg while keeping your tummy pulled in towards the floor.
Keep it slow, alternate legs for 1 minute.
If you rush, you will start working the larger muscle groups in your tummy instead of the smaller ones at the lower end. Once you have perfected lowering your legs straight one at a time, you can progress to lowering both legs together – don’t try to lower too far too soon, and keep pulling your tummy in!
Try to complement these lower ab exercises with exercises that strengthen your lower back as this is a vital part of your core – hip extensions are a great choice for this as they simultaneously strengthen the butt, hamstrings and lumbar spine.
