If you think you need to get on the floor to work your abs, you're wrong. The majority of the abdominal exercises in the fitness world require you to lie on the floor, mainly on your back.

They are a great way to start out if you are a beginner exerciser. Many people who are just starting out find getting down to the floor to perform crunches a bit difficult.

Now, this isn't to say that standing ab exercises are just for beginners. They are great for everyone.Full Story >>
