Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

For most people, crunches and sit ups are the types of exercises that come to mind when they hear about flattening a tummy. However, there are standing ab exercises that are introduced to the public these days. Those kinds of exercises are known to be so much easier as compared to the traditional forms of belly exercises.

There are some people that perform weight lifting forward while sitting down as their way to attain a flat belly. A lot of professionals say that those forms of exercises can improve and at the same time strengthen the core muscles of the body. However, they are not often recommended because they tend to hurt people's backs and necks. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of people who would not want to do those routines because of the pain that they suffer after the workout.

On the other hand, there are not too many people know that they can actually attain the same results if they perform those belly fat exercises while standing up. A lot of people are able to achieve an equally toned as well as fit abdominal area without having to go through the excruciating and difficult process. Standing ab exercises are provided in order to take people away from those painful strain on the muscles on their back and neck.

Those types of exercises also refer to every abdominal exercise that can help in shaping people's abdomen and at the same time building stronger muscles. It is also referring to the exercises that are able to mainly focus on the abdominal muscles. Simple crunches and sit ups are just a few of those ab exercises that are done while people are lying down.

Lying down can develop back muscle pains if an individual is not on a proper posture. It can also cause neck pains. Moreover, performing the abdominal exercises while standing up is more beneficial as it will allow people to use more different muscle groups compared to lying down. Therefore, they are saved from all the bother of preparing a lying mat and also finding a perfect and suitable place to do the routines. Standing ab exercises in the said context are a lot safer but still people need to follow proper posture to avoid injuries.

One of the best routines done while standing up is the side bending. It strengthens the core muscles and it can be performed easily. A person only needs to hold a 2.5, a 5, or a 10 pound dumbbell on one hand. The other free hand has to be placed over the head while stiffly bending the elbow. Bending to the side of the body that holds the weight is the only thing needed done.
