    Oh, this one is great and it looks effective. I need to do ab work but I hate getting down on the floor.

    I usually do this lying down but it’s a great idea standing up because (as he mentioned) you can add jumping jax or squats

    This is great! How many reps should be done though?

      You’ve got to figure out what works best for yourbody. If 3 sets of 20 is all you can do before you start to burn, then stick with that. Once it starts to get too easy, go up by five… 3 sets of 25, then 3 sets of 30… that’s how you do it. 🙂
