Should You Do Abs Exercises Every Day If You Want To See Results?

It's a new year, which means there’s no time like the present to finally tone up your tummy. You found a bunch of quick abs workouts and plan to do them everyday, because that’s the best way to chisel your middle, right?

Not quite. When you do the same exercises every day, you may be causing more harm than good. “Every time you strength train, you cause micro-tears in the muscle,” says Astrid Swan, NASM-certified master trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp in West Hollywood, CA (who also has a killer six-pack). “The muscle needs time to heal, and as it heals, it grows and you see results.” By doing the same exercise, or working out the same part of the body over and over again, you won’t get more fit or make gains. Instead, you’ll be more prone to plateau or cause an overuse injury. “Your abs are like any other muscle you train, so giving time for the muscles to grow and heal is crucial,” says Swan. “When I do an abs circuit, I use variety and I also give my abdominals and body time to rest and recover.” (The Slim, Sexy, Strong Workout DVD is the fast, flexible workout you've been waiting for!)
