Try this! *READ FULL ARTICLE WITH PHOTOS* https://muscularstrength.com/article/How-Often-Should-I-Train-My-Abs-Learn-My-Secret-To-Achieving-Six-Pack-Abs This is a question I am asked a lot and being in the fitness industry as long as I have, I have heard many different answers and explanations. So here is my disclaimer: Everything I say here is based on a mix of research, my experience with my own body and my experience with clients. Not one thing works for everyone because we are different! You can use this as a general guideline and, with time, fine tune what works best for your body. First, let me start by saying that there are two categories of people: those who just want a nice tight and lean core (a lot of women fall under this category) and those who want the big blocky very visible 6-pack. So keep this in mind as you read the information below. What are the most effective ABS exercises? I have heard many people say that you never have to train abs because they are worked hard enough during intense compound lifts like squats and deadlifts. If you fall under the first category, and we’re talking strictly about “core engagement” and not building and sculpting blocky abs, you might be able to get away with this. Now, if you want to GROW your six-pack, you will need to do abdominal isolation exercises on top of the compound movements just like you would any other muscle group. For example, if you want to grow your biceps, you don’t do just pull ups, you add some curls to your program to isolate and destroy that specific muscle group, right? Well, you abs are the same! Another point I want to make about those who only rely on compound lifts to work their abs is that if you’re always relying on the assistance from a weight training belt when performing your lifts, although you’re engaging your core, you will quickly find that YOUR core will be much weaker than someone who does not. There is nothing wrong with using a belt, just understand that the more you use it, the more you need to spend time training your entire core (abs, lower back, & obliques) to make it stronger. The best thing to do would be to train without a belt when doing your lighter sets and only use your belt when you get into your heavier more intense sets. How Often Should I Train My Abs? I have found that abs are a lot like our calf muscles because they need a lot more volume in order to grow. With that in mind I don’t train abs just once a week. I actually train them four times a week and separate them into two workouts. “Upper & Lower” one day and “Lower & Obliques” on the other and I do these workouts after the muscle split I’m training for the day. Ultimately, how often you will train your abs will come down to personal preference and how much time you have available, but let’s talk about my training schedule. My ab schedule is very simple and I even have two videos you guys can check out if you would like to try my routines. Starting Monday, I like to train two days of abs, rest on Wednesday then repeat Thursday and Friday. Weekends are ab rest days. Keep in mind that this is not set in stone. Sometimes if I am in a hurry, I will do my regular muscle splits and leave the ab workout for the weekend. Day one focusing on “Upper & Lower ABS” Day two focusing on “Lower ABS & Obliques” Now there is a lot of debate that you cannot target upper or lower abs because the rectus abdominis is one big long muscle. *CONTINUE READING HERE* https://muscularstrength.com/article/How-Often-Should-I-Train-My-Abs-Learn-My-Secret-To-Achieving-Six-Pack-Abs Program Selector - Get The Right Program For You! - https://muscularstrength.com/Program-Selector ---------------------------------------- Subscribe To My Channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/ScottHermanFitness ---------------------------------------- 1 on 1 Online Coaching - http://muscularstrength.com/consultations ---------------------------------------- DOWNLOAD MY APP! – iPhone & Android! https://muscularstrength.com/phoneapp ---------------------------------------- MORE TIPS! - https://www.instagram.com/ScottHermanFitness'
