Make sure to target all of yourdifferent ab muscles - the rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and internal and external obliques.Some example exercises that target these muscles are the following:Rectus abdominis - ball crunchesTransverse abdominis - the plankInternal / External obliques - the bicycleYou should perform 10 - 16 repetitions of each exercise 2 - 3 times, just like any other muscle. Makesure to check your form (making sure you are not using momentum), and you can always increasethe difficulty and effectiveness of your workout by slowing the movements down.You need to be careful not to work your abdominals too much or too frequently, otherwise they willnot repair between exercise sessions.
