There’s been something magical in the air these past few days- not only is the weather absolutely amazing here, but my standing abs video has gotten an insane number of hits through Pinterest. Thank you SO much to everyone who has been “liking” and supporting my blog. I’m so grateful!
Because of the comments and increasing interest in standing abs, I’ll definitely be putting together another one. In the meantime, I wanted to point out that I already have a second standing abs video on my site. It incorporates weights, but this will help with the weight load on your abs (forcing you to pull them in). If you don’t have free weights at home you can always use other small weighted objects (like books) though it might be a bit more difficult to maneuver.
Standing abdominal exercises work best for the tough love handle area. I always like to say they “melt your muffin top!” While your middle abdominal area will still be working, there are more effective exercises for the ‘pooch’ that are done on the floor. An added benefit to the standing exercises is that they aren’t as common, which is why I think they’ve become so popular here.
I also had a question about results with standing abs. I can’t really say that my results are entirely from standing abs (after all, I am the product of all of my own workouts- cardio, toning, etc and diet), but here is what my abs are lookin’ like these days.
They aren’t perfect, but it’s where I am. Love handles (and abs in general) are something I obsess about regularly, so I pretty much work my obliques every day.
I am always excited to hear your feedback about my videos 🙂 I’m happy to take requests for things you want to see more of as well (I’ve already had a couple, and have them in line for future posts). Enjoy the weekend everyone!
