i run about 1 mile before workout and 1 mile after and do abs 2-3 times a week. However, sometimes I get spasms in my abs that cripple me so I'm probably not giving enough recovery time. Recently I've backed it down to twice a week - usually Monday Thursday for me.

I train them at least 3 times a week...usually M, W, F
M = 3 sets of 25 straight leg lifts and 3 sets of 45 degree incline 10 straight up and 10 twist to each side
W = 3 sets of 25 straight leg lifts and 3 sets of ab-rollers (nose to floor) at 25 reps each
F = 3 sets of "ab machine" weighted crunches at 12 reps and 3 sets of 45 degree incline crunches

Depends on what your goals are.Your abs get plenty of work on all core exercises.They are used as stabilizers.

I dont do any ab exercises, but i do squats, pushups, and deadlifts.
I dont have a 6 pack, but im happy with what ive got.
