    Abs and Forearms 3 days a week, T or F??

    My ab routine looks like this:

    4 sets of 25 weighted pull down crunches
    4 sets of 25 weighted leg lifts

    My forarm routine looks like this:

    3 sets wrist curls
    3 sets reverse wrist curls
    (both reps of 10)

    I do these once a week, but I've heard to do them three times a week. True or False? If true should I lower the number of reps on abs?

    I've always heard that doing abs multiple times/week was from the old "spot fat reduction" myth.

    So what premises an ab workout ed or even eod? Is it because they are smaller and require less recovery time? I had always heard that they are just like and other muscle and require at least 3 days of recovery time.

    Genetically , those can be very hard to build up for some people. I hit mine 2-3 times a week, so it's okay to train them. I do 1 day high rep (25) and 2 days of low rep with weight (8-12). If you have any questions you could PM Shredz . The man knows what hes talking about when it come to abs.

    Peace,
