Oh & btw it definitely doesn’t seem like it’s too much or not enough in my opinion. If you have the time I say go for it. It’s good to get toned in all areas. I’m most focused on my tummy at this point, but getting the other areas is very important.

Looks good! 

 

Just wanted to throw out there that 90% of weight loss is about what you eat!  I’ve also heard the term “abs start in the kitchen” quite frequently.

I think your routine is stellar! If you can stick with it you’ll lose the weight in no time. I agree with SanDiegoAli, a lot of it is diet. If you love food, try to incorporate some treats into a healthy eating routine.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!

I am currently taking courses to become a certified personal trainer and in my opinion (which you can take or leave ๐Ÿ™‚ ) is that you shouldn’t be doing an ab workout everyday.  Your body needs time to rest inbetween work outs.

 You should work one muscle group (whether it be arms, abs or legs) and then give the muscles some time to recoperate, you will see better results this way and lower your chances of an overuse injury.

As important as working out it, factoring in a rest day or two is equally important.  You don’t want to be limping down the aisle because you pushed yourself too hard.

I just want to second the comment that you do not need to work your abs every day. Your abs need rest just like every other muscle that you will be working out.

 

Also, make sure you fuel your body with complex carbs and protein after your workout, so that your muscles can recover!!

I was just going to post the same things as Future Mrs. M! Don’t work your abs everyday – they need rest too. I work out six days a week, and only do abs for three of those days. Rest days are important too ๐Ÿ™‚

I was reading all the posts worried that no one was going to tell you that you were doing too many abs. Abs are a muscle just like your biceps and also need rest.

I am also a personal trainer and recommend to only do abs every other day! Also to get the best results with weight loss do cardio 5-6x per week (minimum of 3) and count your calories. For the best toning results do full body workouts 3x per week or split it up so that you alternate Upper and lower body for a 6 day plan.

When J.S. was working out 2 hours a day she was doing an hour of cardio daily and an hour of weights alternating muscle groups for 6 days a week. With one day of complete rest!

Good Luck!
