    is it good to do crunchs everyday

    I do crunchs everyday 5 days a week with a workout and after.
    Is it good to do them everyday. Or should i cut back. And one other thing is it better to do crunch more when on a cycle.

    This is a very gray area, but I do abs eod. They are still a muscle that needs to recover like any other. Would you do 100 bicep curls with 10lbs ed?? Train them like any other muscle with enough recovery time. BTW, if you hit them hard you shouldn't be able to do them the next day.

    oops, sorry about that last post - pushed wrong button

    anyways: Tennis_God - please let me know what you do for abs. You see, I had been training them daily for 2-3 years (i was hecticly overweight - and so i never 'saw' them so I was under the facade they weren't there ) but i was yoiung and naive hehe.

    lately i have cut it down to be eod - sometimes twice in a row to get 4 days/week in. i have tried everything from high reps, low reps, weighted, unweighted, many different excercies + forms + positions etc. and I cannot really get them sore the next day - I am thinking maybe its cause they are so used to it already

    I get a great burn when training them, bu the next day i am fine. i only actually really feel them sore the next day if its after heavy deadlifts or squats (due to their stabilisation uses in the body).

    got any suggestions?? thanks!

    My abs respond great to 3 days a week at 20 min. Diet is what really makes the difference. You dont want to overtrain them or use a lot of weight. You want them tighter and toned, not bigger.

    I train abs twice a week hard and heavy for 5-10 mins. This is the only way I will train abs for the moment, doing endless amounts of situps is a waste of valueable time in my eyes. It is damn hard to put muscle on and keep it on but damn easy to lose it.

    I train my abs 3 times a week and I don't really have much to show for it now, but in a couple months they'll be there and ripped.
