    Can you work out Abs everyday?

    I remember my dad telling me that it is possible to workout abs everyday without overtraining. Is this true? I think I will stick to doing abs on M W F, I should be too sore to do them everyday.

    It's possible, for sure, but the way I work them makes them too sore, and there are better uses of your time.

    Your abs are muscles. Just like any other muscle they need recovery time. So what I am saying is - no u cant work your abs out everyday and expect to see decent gains.

    So two times a week would give sufficient time for them to recover?

    Twice a week should be more than enough - assuming you're workign them correctly and not merely shooting for number of reps, you'll be fine. I work my abs as an afterthought at the end of a workout, whenever I feel like hitting them. I've got a good core already from 4 years of gymnastics in high school, but I don't really think it takes a lot to get good abs - it just takes a lot to be able to SEE those abs [i.e. diet/cardio].
    You're = you are.
    Your = your.

    I have no respect for those with no respect for logic.

    You can work any muscle everyday, depending on the volume. IF you did one set for abs everyday, then that is fine, but you couldn't do 7 sets everyday.
