How Often Should I Do Ab Exercises?


Neophytes in the realm of ab exercises have lots of questions about frequency and intensity, as well as about the different types of workouts. This is when a little research will come in handy. The abdominal group of muscles should be approached like any other muscle group.

They should be worked about two or three times per week. As with other groups, they should also rest at least a day or so in between workouts to allow the muscles to rest, rebuild and add to the current muscle mass.

Unfortunately, high-volume training isn’t going to yield any improvement in results. Instead, you would be better off to select exercises that are so challenging that you’re only able to do about fifteen or twenty repetitions in any given workout.

The most popular ab exercises are usually planks, crunches and bicycles. There are a lot of additional exercises you can add to the usual routine, too. As a general guideline, beginners should pick one or two exercises for the abdominal group.

Do one or two sets of about a dozen or so repetitions per set and you’ll be on track. Work these exercises into your routine and pay attention to what your body is telling you. A personal trainer would be a valuable investment at the beginning of your quest for great muscle tone and optimal health.

Whether your goal is strength and health or to look fabulous in your clothes (or out of them), plan out a safe, reasonable workout that won’t stress your body too much in its early stages. Choose a single fitness goal and begin working toward it.
