How Often Should You Workout Your Abs?

Video taken from the channel: V Shred

Is it okay to work your abs everyday? Can you over train your abdominal muscles? Yes, there is such a thing as too much, and you can over train your abdominal muscles but how quickly you get to that point all depends on exactly how you train.

Low Intensity / High Repetition Abdominal Routines. And unless you’re adding significant resistance to your ab routine or working them so hard that they are noticeably sore the next day, you’re safe to work them every day. But, just because you can work your abs every day doesn’t mean it’s the most effective way to attain a strong core, flat abs or lean physique.

Working abs every day can lead to muscle imbalances. Not only can working out abs every day lead to postural problems, but also muscle imbalances. Your abs complex, which is all your abs muscles are comprised of the rectus abdominus, transverse abdominus, internal obliques, and external obliques.

If you do standard crunches 7 days a week for 300 reps, your rectus abdominus. Working Abs Effectively Remember, uncovering rock-hard abs isn’t entirely about how often you work your stomach muscles. It requires losing fat through a combination of diet and cardio exercise, as. The abs forms the bridge between the upper and lower body and helps keep it together.

As such, a commonly-held idea is that the abdominals are endurance muscles that are not subject to the laws of hypertrophy. If this is true, then you should be working out your abs as often as you want or everyday. “When you work out, you cause micro tears in the muscle, so try mixing up your workouts and give yourself ample time to heal and rest.” So, no need to do abs. Unfortunately, most of these doughy abbed guys think that the more they work their abs, the sooner they’ll emerge, but the abs are shy little creatures, preferring to hide until they’re forced out.

You need to rid the mid-section of the fat and sadly, exercise itself isn’t enough. 6 – Cardio won’t give you abs, either. 1. You must train your abs every day—or at least every other day—to stimulate them. False: Many of your other muscle group workouts indirectly involve your midsection, so you won’t need to train your abs that often. Exercises such as squatting, deadlifting, and standing military presses rely on your core for stabilization, so with every rep you’re also getting an ab workout.[1].

Before going from the standing position into the squat, your abs build up tension in the lower part of your upper body. This tension prevents you from falling over, so you don’t bend like you would reaching for your toes. Keeping this tension is hard work for your abs which is why a long lasting squat workout can be an effective replacement. Chances are you’re already training your abs every day. If you train your abdominal muscles every day, you should target them by dividing them into sections like upper, lower, middle abs and obliques.

Training a different section every day will give the other sections time to recover from your workouts.

In any case, you can exercise your abs more than twice a week if you choose, but please don’t fall into the common huge reps and sets trap!

  • That’s a really good point, thinking of it more in terms of building up muscle memory and mind-muscle connection, which can be especially tricky for the abs. I’m working on it now.
    That way, when you do hit them hard you’ll be able to hit them REALLY hard.

  • my problem is for example I do hundreds of crunches, for example with the first hundred I feel wow I realy felt that, but then when I keep going for another 50 then 50 again, I feel like its not hurting as much and I get upset at myself because I can workout what im doing wrong? common problem? I need for the video, great information thank you scott.

  • For what it is worth, some teenager called into a podcast that was interviewing Arnold about working out. He gave some advice but then he told the kid, “Do 200 sit-ups first thing you get up every morning”. Now, Arnold is not the only method of training on the planet but I toss that out there.

  • Normally and 5 days a week straight is best like 5 days strait and chill Saturday and Sundays arms also 5 legs 5 or 6 but 5 you heal that 2 days triggers more growth

  • Currently I just do 2 sets of dragon flags twice a week for abs and I’m seeing better results than ever before. Actually been reading a lot on the Mike Mentzer/Dorian Yates style of training and I’m trying to bring all of my training volume down and ramp up the intensity instead. Great results for me and it saves me a lot of time.

  • $uccess is Written all over this voice, it has potential hidden in it, listen closely…strengthening the diaphragm to support the solar plexus and spine…ab work every day in 7 minutes with explosive fat burning molecular combination…suggestions?

  • Thank you Vince for all this videos and the advice! Came across to your channel and Im glad that happened. Learning a lot thru all this videos�� Than you very much!:)

  • I work out my core every day five days a week after each work out. That is what I do to finish off my work out plus a 20 minute walk on the treadmill.

  • I am on your 90 program right now in this video you said we should not workout abs legs but in my 90 day shreds program there’s abs,shoulder and legs together

  • I have been working on my abs every time I go to the gym. It’s like 4/5 days in a week from couple of months. But I am not getting hard and well visible abs. Suggest me

  • After you’re gym workout what happens if you’re not soar and gave it you’re all? Does that still build muscle, cause in the gym I work out really hard to the point where Im up to failure, and not being able to do any more reps but then the next day I’m never soar! I always increased the wait and use slow form but never get soreness from my body! What does that mean please help!

  • Do it everyday into you can’t feel your stomach or when it hurts doesn’t matter about number when it hurts that’s when you know it works do it till your stomach hurts. Be persistent hard work pays off” “floyed Mayweather “

  • Totally off topic but love the look and hair. Thanks for answering this question. I think you should do abs 3-4 times a week?? Not sure. Haha

  • Hello. I am very glad that there is someone with school and so much knowlague about muscles. looking good and keep on good work.
    There is a question. I have been in sport since when i was a kid. Never had problems untill i joined ship life. Now i am home training and i just have that lower belly problem stoping my 6 pack from looking good. Carb cycling is good from ketosis to high carb days. And when i heard you promoting that you won me. If i do abs often. does that stop my fat burning on a stomack? Thank you upfront

  • I don’t even work my abs tbh, staying lean will show them and when you do exercises that require core strength (bench-press, lat-pull down etc) they are being activated

  • Since you train (All muscle groups 7 days a week) How do you respond to the other side that says that the body must have a rest day between workouts (meaning workout 3-4 days) for muscles to recover AND for the muscles to ACTUALLY GROW? Most importantly provide a response to those who say working your muscles 7 days a week will damage or wear out your muscles, of course there’s many theories out there but I’m asking YOU because your not a theory and you’re applying this to your own body, therefore you have experience history data instead of these other guys of theory… Thank you for your content!

  • I train abs everyday. There are a bunch of different exercises you can do to train abs so you will never get bored. Throw some yoga ab training in there. Basically yoga is just another view of calithenics.

  • focusing on different areas of the abs on a daily basis is not practical, let’s face it. good channel though, I enjoy your videos.

  • Backflips and other flips are good ab exercises. I’m not dead trim but I had a good six pack before I started the gym just from doing free running ������

  • If the abs are one muscle, how can you workout the lower/upper parts of it? You can’t target the lower/upper part of any other muscle, so how come you can with abs?

  • As you suggest, I train abs 6 days/week, but “intensively” only twice. In such 2 sessions I experiment new exercises or loads, while in the other 4 I simply replicate… the hits of the moment. This way, I never get bored (and God knows if abs training is boring), and get acquainted with my core. During the two hard sessions, I use lots of isometrics, since it’s proved that dynamic exercises don’t help so much when it’s time to hold a position.

    All the best for your channel.

  • I never train abs, many movements need shoulder strength, abdominal strength is not what we focuses on.
    if i train my abs more, i wont be able to keep my 27in waist XD

  • Here are my useless stats, 5’11 224lbs (28-29% bf) I have an anterior pelvic tilt, been working abs even though i wont see them for a long time, i havent worked abs directly since i was 12 yrs old, i am now 21 yrs old. And am now working abs 3-4 times a week for up to 30mins a session. I have some definition in good lighting. But i used to deadlift 300lbs for 2 raw, this was last year, most of the weight was on my lower back and by some miracle, i didnt end up destroying my lower back:) never underestimate ab work, even if you are overweight or obese. Im pumped to get back to the gym and see if my deadlift went up, i honestly will be happy if its still around 300lb range.

    My point, even if you are overweight dont give up on training abs if my lazy ass can train abs, anyone can lol:)

    Great video scott

  • Hey Matt, which one do you think is better ab exercise? hanging leg raises or ab rollout? or at least what would you do if you can only choose one.

  • I made my wotkout to train 2x per week directly, but then I work it indirectly by doing front lever, planches and other skills, or even the basics with the core engaged.

  • Hey Matt, seing your videos for more than a year now, and in the way of progressing exercises with more tension, so my goal must be keep tension in my whole body in all exercises? like tensing chest and triceps during pull ups, or this would be counter productive? Great video by the way!

  • I do daily high frequency full body training and squeeze my ab exercises in between other exercises. I could be standing around resting or I could be doing some abdominal work; easy choice.

  • These guys have such cocky attitudes but still provide the information needed which can be good or annoying which ever side u choose to look at

  • Hanging knee raises is a light exercise? Damn… it’s really tiring for me because of the balance and hanging. It doesnt necessarily hit the core as hard, just the nervous system I guess

  • That background with the RDP logo seems to be a new feature.
    I think you are a living example of the ‘kaizen’ philosophy: always getting better, not only on technique, also on your vids!

  • Awesome video Matt!:) I’ve heard about the theory that you don’t need any specific ab training if you do stuff like front levers, human flags and such, because they engage abs very hard by themselves. What are your thoughts on that?

  • what is the downside to not including variety? I have been working out for a few months but have been using the same routine everyday. I often hear the argument that you ” will get burnt out on it” is this the case? Or is it just your body finding ways to cheat the routine overtime?

  • Doesn’t just training calisthenics everyday,which is compound movements by default,
    train our abs and core effectively,without the need to have a separate ab day Matt?

  • I don’t disagree with anything you say here. But I think advice to do daily abs is (as is so often my theme) an influence of bodybuilding/aesthetics. A guy with abs showing is going to want that pump. The pump isn’t growthit’s just doing a bunch of reps to put blood in a place he wants to feel rock solid. For those of us who are used to having bellies, fat loss is the way to move toward having visibility on the abs, so daily quads and glutes (and ab vacuums to engage transverse abdominus) is best for aestheticsfocused work on the rectus abdominus is just going to push the belly out a bit, while constantly using bigger muscles will burn the fat down for a more “ready for athletics” look even if not lean.

    As for performance, I agree with everythinguse the abs in every exercise, do so daily, and hit the abs more intensely in line with a work/rest protocol.

  • Even when I push it to the limit in terms of power output/difficulty in ab training I am never sore for more than one day. That is why I do abs every other day, or rather 3 weekdays per week. Most of my other muscles, especially my legs, need 4-6 days to recover.

  • good advice, to separate lower and upper abs. it’s not roidgut but growth hormone that makes internal organs grow.roids don’t do that they have other side effects

  • My morning routine for the past year. Active hang from overhead bar: Hollow body 30 sec. L-sit 30 sec. Straight-legged leg raises 30 sec. Oblique knee raises 30 sec. No rest period. Takes just two minutes before I jump in the shower. Results have been great!

  • So if im training my abs directly 2x week should i train all of muscles to have a rest 3 days between or devide it to train (for instance) 1)obligues &serratus 2)rectus abdominal?

  • I try to workout any day i can and sometimes that would be everyday. I use fullbody training with weights and calisthenics. Working out doesnt mean im always doing big strength training sessions. This could include stretching, skill training, low intensity and high reps for joint and tendon strength, cardio or i could be doing isolation exercises for necks, calves and forearms. The thing is im always trying to move because i have a sitting job and love training. A game changer for me was investing in a home gym. The convenience cant be beat. People dont train as much as they think they can train because they have busy lives and the commute to the gym and waiting for people take up time. I find my training protocols are more flexible and give me alot of gains. Invest in a home gym if you love training and have the space for it. You dont need outside motivation to GET GAINS!

  • Hey mate I have started your ripped in 90days program. I really struggle with the correct form for squats. Will I get the same or similar results from using leg press or other leg push machines? Cheers Caleb

  • Wow Matt! Every assesment video you upload is full of knowledge! As far as I consider, what you have just said can also be applied for every human discipline! My admiration and respect for you, dear Matt!

  • I agree 100 %….I don’t train abs everyday but I work abs everyday…an example, I do L-pullups and that works the core but it’s not specific to the core. I do hanging windshield wipers once in a while which is geared for the core but actually taxes the pulling muscles…Dragon flags are geared for the core but they are actually a full body exercise…I’ve discovered you don’t need to do ab specific training if you focus on the core while doing any exercise, upper or lower body.. Hold the abs/ass tight for control…Very simple.

  • I used to train my abs every day but I felt like I was plateauing, I now train 3 days a week (heavy training) and incorporate abs the other 4 days and I feel like I’m improving! ��

  • I find that too much ab training leads to a posterior pelvic tilt. My abs were once so short and tight that I lost the natural arch in my back. Make sure to balance your training.

  • Abs are definitely made in the gym, but to show them off you gotta know what your doin in the kitchen too. Thats my take at least. Awesome video man.

  • I think that they can be made in the kitchen but will come faster if you work them out. I used to be chubby so I have some extra fat left over but it’s one of my goals. Were you in a caloric deficit?

  • I do follow your vedio and after an hour and day I pain the muscle of stomach and legs… Am I going to continue in the following day of work out?

  • Wondering how often you train chest and back
    And I am 90%certain the lower back pain is because of the crunches or movement patterns similar to the crunch where all the tension is on you lower back but offcourse if you dont have balanced muscles your back as a whole will start to curve in

  • Good topic, my brother. I follow Jeff at Athlean x for almost everything he suggests! I was also doing abs every day as per Jeff’s direction. I actually found that doing abs every day was worse for me. Every other day works a bit better for me, with of course a solid diet. Once I got to 10 percent body fat, the abs really started to pop, and it gets exciting. One critique, and I noticed the same with myself, is a slight belly distention. An EASY fix for this has been to do daily transverse abdominal tightening. You can do it standing up or laying on the floor on your back. Just suck with the belly button in and hold for 45-60 seconds. This did WONDERS for my abs. I noticed my lower abs stay tucked in now and less of a bowl look. Also, be cautious of too much veggies on the fod map. They can bloat you big time. Bloat can make you appear much worse than you are. Anyway, great content and I’m glad you were looking into this. I may go back to every day again and see if I notice better definition now that I have abs a bit of a break.

  • I love you. you changed my metabolism. I followed your diet plan for a month and lost 3 kilograms. then I just continued and chowed down on blueberries and water ever since. I’m continually losing weight even while having the weekend sweet desserts. your body type diet seriously works. trying to convince my hubby to do the quiz too. hes not losing any weight on my diet plan which is for me! but hes so stubborn.

  • I do abs 5 x a week following whatever workout I do that day. I don’t do the same thing every day. I vary it between your newer video that focuses on breathing, yoga abs and other holds and good ol’ things like crunches, leg lifts etc. I enjoy ab workouts and this method works for me.

  • Hi.BeAutiful.sisterMama.jessica

  • Agreed with everything said!! To me as long as your nutrition is in check, Direct AB training is worth doing daily even if its 7 days a week. its best to train with different intensities if training everyday. It has worked for me! Excellent video!

  • understanding became a curve. at the start i was beginning to see whats up rapid increase, then at the middle it was average information meaning constant, at the end it all confused me, so im back to where i start from.

  • Engage that core during all activities and workouts. But actual concentration on abs should be 2-3 times a week. Am I right?????

  • But Arnold Schwarzenegger said we should do crunches by the thousands per day. But seriously, though, I’m 2 kilograms away from my goal (I’m cutting). Hopefully, 1 month is enough for that. But just to prevent fat from accumulating on my belly, wouldn’t be helpful to do something ab workout maybe 4 times a week if not every day?

  • My son is 12 & I just started to get him into weekly workouts. For ab workouts we both are starting with working out our abs 4 times a wk, However I do plan on keeping his ab workouts to 10-15 mins since he is only 12 & a newbie. Thanks for the video and if you can please do an advice video for adolescents who are new to building personalized workout routines.

  • If u have a belly like 90 percent of us do the abs til the fat gets thinner and ur happy. And a shit ton of cardio is the only way to lose 2 lbs of fat a week with good diet. Abs r built in the kitchen and not many keep them so…..

  • Me n my girl went and seen these guys at the Spokane comedy club n they were chill ppl. Glad I had the opportunity to go n see them. ����

  • Its kinda insane to think how good these guys advice was for the time. There has been studies on this shit now and they were right. You do need to isolate them.

  • The muscles in your core are designed for constant work. Because a real human (hunter gatherer) who runs, climbs and swims everyday relies on core stability for every single movement.

  • Them gains aint worth a toss when you meet jesus. I like you guys but you following the world and teaching them to do the same. You say you dont give an F, but you will when you reach judgement. Repent and trust in jesus. Go study the bible and store your treasure in heaven. You missing out on so much life, real life.

  • You 2 give me soooooo much live,i’ve just discovered you here and im already thinking issa snack lol. anyhu been trying to get a mild six pack for almost 4 months now but nothing.. been working out for 5 days a week minimum for 2 hours,drinking water and even minding my diet but still nothing.. Though i see changes but im thinking i should be having a six pack by now and believe you me its not like i have a massive tummy,infact my waist is only 25″ but i have a upper and lower tummy. so annoying. i just want a 6 pack:'(

  • I say 2x per week is plenty as long as the exercises are challenging and you are doing each exercise with your max effort! That has always worked for me and many others!

  • two years ago, i had an accident due to this i lost cintroll on my left leg and left hand, i can walk and use hand but when i lift dumbbell in gym it get in other direction to right hand due to this i m not able to do exercises, it feels like i have little or no control over hand and leg,will you please help me out, to gain control

  • Im like in day 34 abs every single day doing online rutines and i just feel the same im getting dismotivated i need help this its not the correct way only working out for sure… and im skiny 137lbs height 5 6 plz help

  • You say two days on and rest then two days off. Are you doing day 1 and then day 2 then rest day and then day 1 then day 2 and resting on the weekend? I’m trying to build my abs. I’m wondering if I should do video 1 on Monday and then video 2 on Tuesday rest and then repeat. How do you do it? Maybe after I pay this, it’ll make more sense. I’m having issues processing information since the shock of Covid.:/

  • Not sure if you will comment on this but here goes… I had a spinal fusion about 4 months ago and have just recently started to lift weights again after being sidelined for 3 years. My doctor prescribed me a back brace so do you recommend not wearing this soft back brace when working out? I need to build my strength back in all areas. Thank you!

  • Thanks for this! I’m gonna do this! I work and every other day basically 3-4 days a week so I’m about to focus on this and cut down on cardio! Because I do hella cardio! HELLA! ��

  • I’ll admit I don’t prioritize my legs much so I just do 3 sets of shrimp squats/pistol squats training and 3 sets of hip bridges every day. It’s not really fatiguing so I can do it everyday without hurting myself.

  • Never been able to see my Abs or feel ridges under the skin. After watching your older video recommending cable Ab pull downs at nearly 45 years old I’m starting to see cuts all be it slight In my abs. Im about 11% body fat so it will be better when I cut to 8 or 9%. Having always raced bikes loosing weight is the easy part as my fat burning metabolism has never slowed, although the 6kg of muscle I’ve gained might make me a bit slowly up those hills this summer.
    I’ve also introduced what I think are called Dragon fly leg lifts too and can really feel the ridges forming.
    Thanks for the great tips. One of the best on you tube. 30 years of crunches and no results then added resistance and it’s all happening.

  • If u just add 5-10 minutes of abs to the end of ur workout everyday plus actually do cardio like running or swimming then ur abs will get big and shredded, or at least that what works for me

  • hello, think you should do your videos in less time, takes too much time, videos of 3 minutes max 5 mins will do the trick instead of spending too much talking and talking, its just an advice, the rest of the information is diamond for my ears.thanks

  • There’s nothing wrong w/a bit of ab isolation. But people need to stop thinking they can spot reduce and crunch the fat away. LOL Getting abs to show is about lowering body fat%. In general though, I think sprinting is hands down one of the best ab exercises you can do, and you get conditioning at the same time.

  • I think guys who say you don’t have to train abs are like me: pretty good ab-genetics and they simply don’t know any better or are on gear. I’ve always got visible abs (eventhough I’m currently like 16% bodyfat) and always had even before lifting. On the downside though: I’m genetically incapable of growing pecs. Horrible insertions and terrible genetics there ;p #themaveragegenetics
