Default Lower abs

hey, i'm a noob when it comes to lifting and/or bodybuilding. i'm in pretty good shape thanks to soccer and basic weight lifting but i'm curious about one thing. i have tried crunches and my upper abs are pretty defined, but i can't seem to get the lower abs to get defined. i was wondering what sort of exercises i could possibly do to basically get a full on six pack. i apologize if i'm being too vague, and would appreciate any help.

I do crunches and leg raises and they seem to develop the entire ab area. I don't know if any exercise targets "Lower" or "Upper" abs, but crunches and leg raises are the magic combo for me.

cheers, man. thank you. i figured i might be thinking the right things but just executing them improperly. i mainly do crunches with my legs straight up and bent at a 90 degree angle at the knees. like i said i'm pretty new to working out, outside of the basic training i did playing sports. this forum has been really helpful just passing through and reading through various threads. i'd like to definitely become more knowledgeable on the subject without being an obvious noob and asking dumb questions.

Your bound to have more fat around your lower abs. That's probably the biggest reason they don't seem defined. Not that there's anything wrong with leg raises or Jack Knifes or whatever you like to do.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

leg raises and a clean diet should help bring them out.

A good clean nutrition plan and proper eating should help the most with the fat along the lower abdominals. Along with some ab exercises that help kick in more muscle fiber recruitment from the lower abdominals such as reverse crunches, reverse crunches with stability ball, prone pike with stability ball, v-sits, and hanging leg raises to name a few.

Hope this helps
