They are still ok and good to do: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercises.asp
?exercise=68


As long as you are doing them in good form and aren't using too heavy of a weight, they can be effective, but I like to do other oblique exercises (my preference). For your upper back, you would want a different exercise, although you can't spot train. You may be interested in our workout library for safe exercises with demos: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/exercise_demo

There are so many exercises nowadays that were once "en vogue" that are now proven to be bad for you and I don't ever see side bends in toning videos anymore.

Ironically I've had Sir Mix a Lot's song "baby got back" stuck in my head this past hour while doing my strength training and I've hit 150 squats and was trying to find an easy (new to me) "core" strenthening move to do that might help my upper back fat... and I though "let's try side bends, I have some dumb bells!"

but also I don't want to hurt myself.... Which is why I'm not doing anymore squats. I work at a factory where we lift a lot of weight and I don't want my legs to be so sore that I can't move. Did that once and I don't want to do it again lol

er... long story short, are these still one of the "old but gold" exercises?
