i am a little confused about how to work my abs...
Im currently working on bulking them up with deeper cuts..
do i work on them like i do with any other muscle? ex. heavy weights with lower reps?
or do i stick with a good weight and bust out till failure?
so basically, wanting to bulk abs... low reps but heavy or high reps with weights?
Thanks for the help everyone

Abdominal muscles aren't any different than the rest of your body, they're a muscle just like your chest, biceps, shoulders, legs.
The significant difference is the amount of times they're worked per day and in everyday life. They're worked during the bigger fraction of compound movements, then during everyday life. So weighted ab movements are ideal.

Okay, I'm WAY over-training my abs. I've been doing 4 sets of 50 on a decline bench with a 10 lb plate on my upper chest 5-6 days per week.

Overtraining refers to the CNS. You're under nourishing your abdominals by not giving them a sufficient amount of rest. The rest isn't getting enough time to repair the muscle tissue. Overtraining muscle tissue would refer to ripping beyond repair, which is substantial injury. Overtraining refers to fatigue of the central nervous system and no one can tell you if you're overloading that but you; however, it's unlikely that you're overloading the CNS with ab work.
