Working your abs while standing is equally effective and much safer than working them on the floor.
There are two exercises to try:
1. The Repeater (body should not be in a straight upright position)
This move is awesome because not only is it an excellent ab exercises but it also provides a bit of a cardio and leg workout.
Stand with your body on angle with one leg in the front with the knee slightly bent and the other leg in the back straight but not locking the knee. Place both of your hands up above your head. Bring the knee at the back to the front and up, as you pull your arms down crossing the knee. Do this move in a fast pace. After doing the desired number of reps, repeat with the other side.
2. Cross-The-Knee Crunch (body in a straight upright position)
This move will work every muscle in your stomach. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a dumbbell (optional) in one hand. Extend the arm with / without your dumbbell over head and put your other hand on your hip for balance. Lower the arm that was in the air while simultaneously bringing the opposite knee up across the body (elbow should lightly touch the knee). Hold this position for a second. Do the desired number of reps then repeat with the other side.
Although some people may dislike the slight bitter taste of the peanut skin, eating peanuts with skin still intact is a lot healthier than the skinless type.
Peanut skin is rich in polyphenols, an antioxidant which have anti-inflammatory (have positive effect on arthritis), anti-cancer and anti-aging effects. It also has resveratrol which can lower blood sugar significantly and is a good source of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber.
