3-Minute Standing Ab Workout
You don't have to hit the floor for abs!
Tom Holland of BowFlex Insider, shares this 4-step routine that you can accomplish inside of three minutes--all while standing! So if you hate the ball or even floor crunches, these are for you!

Exercise 1: March and Squeeze

Start with both hands straight up in the air and bring one knee all the way up while bringing your arms down, keeping your hands above your elbows and near your body, so your elbows and knee line up, with your knee in between both arms. As you do this, squeeze your abs. Return to the starting position and do the same thing with your other knee, and continue to alternate knees.

Exercise 2: Elbow to Opposite Knee

Bring one arm up so your elbow is at chest height and your hand is above your elbow, and bring your opposite knee up while bringing that arm down so your elbow meets your knee (don’t hit them together hard). As you do this, squeeze your abs. Return them back to their starting point and do the same thing with your other knee and elbow, and continue to alternate.

Exercise 3: Straight Leg Raises

Keeping your leg as straight as possible, raise it up in front of your body while bringing the opposite arm down, reaching out your hand to touch your foot (or as close as you can get). Return them back to their starting point and do the same thing with your other leg and arm, and continue to alternate.

Exercise 4: Rotate and Punch

Stand with your legs about shoulder width apart and rotate your upper body, throwing a jab out with your arm. Then rotate the other direction and jab with your other arm. Your feet should stay in about the same location the whole time, with just a little twist of the same foot of the arm that is jabbing to allow the body to rotate.

There's no resistance nor weight, so it's more like aerobics? I'll give it a shot for 3 weeks and see how it goes. Thanks for sharing :)
