Wednesday Wisdom - How Often Should I Train My Abdominals?

It's Wednesday and it's time for us to share some wisdom!

We are often asked how often should the abdominals be trained.  While you'll find a plethora of opinions from fitness professionals around the world, there is hard evidence supporting the principle of rest and recovery for the abdominals.  Just like all other muscle groups, you should have at least one day of rest between training sessions of that given muscle group.  The abs are not excluded from this and while we are on the subject, 1000 of crunches won't give you the results you desire either.    

Train your abdominals 2-3 times/week and monitor your diet and you'll have that 6-pack before you know it :).
