Hi, I'm Kristen Rzasa, Owner of InterPlay Health and Host on FTNS, World's First Fitness Radio. Today, I'm here at the Jazzercise Fitness Center in Stamford, Connecticut to talk about how to build stomach muscles for the disabled who can't stand. If you're unable to stand, either temporarily or permanently, there are still ways you can build your stomach muscles. First of all, one simple exercise you can do anytime of the day is to pull in your abdominal muscles. Imagine that you're pulling your belly button through to the back. Contract and hold this position for as long as you can and then release. Repeat this different times throughout the day. Another exercise you can do to strengthen your oblique muscles or the muscles on your side that make up your waistline are side bends. Keeping your hands on your hips, simply bend from one side through the center, to the other, keeping your shoulders level as you do that. Crunches can be done in a seated position as well. The most simple tip is just keeping good posture. Bring the abdominals in, chest lifted, shoulders back and down, chin up. Keeping good posture throughout the day will also strengthen your abdominal muscles. These are a few tips on how to build stomach muscles for those who are disabled and can't stand. I'm Kristen Rzasa here at the Jazzercise Fitness Center in Stamford, Connecticut.
