    they get sore like any other muscle b/c of lactic acid build up

    My abs usually kill me for a few days after a good workout. It's usually not the day after but 2 days after that I really feel them.

    On abs/legs day I usually hit them with crunches, decline leg raises and hanging leg raises. I love the hanging leg raises... I can really feel them work

    when i haven't done my abs in a while, which is just about now, i feel the pain the day after a workout.

    just b/c you aren't feeling pain doesn't mean you aren't gaining.
