    Work abs every day every other day? what?

    Ok 1st ?? Abs..for last 6 weeks my work out plan has been gym 5 days a week...again Im starting to do this.

    I do 1 day heavy weight...10 reps 3 sets of 2 ab mechines and the cruch mechine...on other day do 3 sets of 50 with little or no weight.

    read that abs should be worked every day...then next artical says NOT to work abs every day...u know the deal..depends on what u read.

    Soo what do u all do or think?? every day...one day work them one day rest??

    Same with lower back I do the Roman chair and mechine version...press back on the arm with your back...every day...do the same as abs..1 day low reps high weight..next day high reps low weight.

    any recomendations?

    I do a lot of physical work in my job...but even like to day jackhammering up a few feet of concret slab to fix a drain problem I do not count as exercise.

    Thanks All.

    What exactly is your goal at this point? Abs every other day sounds crazy to me... If you're trying to lose a 'spare tire', or weight in general, no amount of ab work is going to do that. Cardio & an evenly balanced weight routine, possibly even full body workouts may be a better option.
    John McCain:
    "You know, I think you may have noticed that Senator Obama's supporters have been saying some pretty nasty things about Western Pennsylvania lately. And you know, I couldn't agree with them more. I couldn't disagree with you. I couldn't agree with you more than the fact that Western Pennsylvania is the most patriotic, most god-loving, most, most patriotic part of America, and this is a great part of the country."

    I currently do abs once a week and that seems to be enough to strengthen them so that I don't injure myself while doing other exercises like squats and barbell presses. When I do abs, I'm usually sore the next day and sometimes the day after that. So, for me, working abs 2x a week would be about as much as I could tollerate. Your milage may vary depending on how intense your workouts are.

    If ever I decide to have 6-pack abs, all I'd have to do is lose about half of my body fat.

    I normally will do them 2 times a week. Usually just crunches, leg lifts and regular sit ups. Once in a while I will do the weighted machine or rope pull downs. BUT when I am dieting and preping for a show I will do them 5 times a week.
    Every day counts.

    Varies

    Sit-ups, with or without weights, on chest day.

    Leg raises, on back / leg day.

    I favour the twice a week at least idea with the abs using a mixture of crunche, sit ups and stomach vacuum.

    I usually do 400-500 situps on my dumbell bench, every morning with my first two cups of coffee.
    That's all the abs I do, except hitting them in secondary lifts.

    I work mine 2 or 3 times a week, obliques the same. Sometimes I do incline crunches, sometimes regular crunches with my feet up on a ball. Sometimes I hold a medicine ball when doing the crunches, other times not, sometimes I do leg lifts, or "flutter kicks" or planks. Just depends on my mood that day. Generally I do about 100 reps total of whatever exercise I chose that day.
