    Abs and resting


    I basically work my abs 5 days a week.....cardio six days a week, biceps 3 times a week, and chest and back 3 times a week. I have a ton of football injuries to my legs which Is why I don't lift with them anymore.....I've been told That working the same groups over and over is bad......but I see a lot of good results .......is 1 rest day enough?

    Do u think the results will be better if I mix in another routine to rest the current muscle groups I repetitively hit.

    No, look into a 3-4 day routine....why are you working your muscles so frequently?

    I was 325 lbs...currently 217 ...goal is 205......looking at my results and being able to see my abs has prompted me to work even harder.....was just curious that If I rest more , if the muscles would build faster.

    The mistake you are making is not training your legs.

    You could even see results with one day a week. Abs are involved in more exercises than you think
