hi! if you are asking the question maybe u should find different ways to train ur abs to keep it fresh and interesting. there are sports u can learn that are fun and really give a good workout all over. kayaking is great because it really works ur core, start off on a nice calm loch ( lake!) or slow river in summer so it's not too deep and make sure you go with a club that has qualified instructors to make your eperience enjoyable and safe. counterbalancing on the water is good fun and utilises the core synergistic muscles. paddling is good resistance training for the back pecs and biceps and triceps. rolling ( when u get to that ) is ( best done supervised ) good for the abs, back arms-esp the forearms and hands from gripping- and obliques ).
climbing is great for the lats ( monkey muscles as i like to call them cos i grew up climbing and swinging on trees!!) and legs, think about serious gastroc and soleus definition doing climbing! u are supposed to push with the legs more than pull with the arms apparantly but having stregnth in all areas is preferable i'm sure!! especially when there are overhangs which u can use to train your abs back and obliques.
i want to get monkey bars made!!
have you ever trained on an assault course? theres lots of things like rope swings and tyre swings that get you using your body like a monkey!! (ook ook!) you have to use ur abs to get momentum for swinging! i have instructed some interesting ropes challenges!! train with qualified instructors and always use a petzel gri gri ( a cam device for belaying which has instructions on it which u should be very careful to follow and when used properly is the safest belay and ascending device).

One day I read you should work abs daily. then I read to work abs without weights and just by doing crunches etc.. Then I hear to train them every other day??? Now I hear you should work abs like any other muscle(once or twice a week with weights). Whats right??
