Welcome to Monday’s Tips & Tricks!

Every other week, I’d like to share with you a tip or trick that I’ve learned that has improved my life in some way.

Don’t Do Situps Every Day

Situps

I’ve heard it said that abdominal muscles are different than other muscle groups and so deserve to be worked every day. I disagree! 

There are three layers of muscles in the abdomen – external obliques, internal obliques and the abdominus. Like all other muscles in your body, you need to leave 48 hours rest in between your workouts. Don’t work the same muscles on consecutive days.

So, take a break and don’t worry about working those abs on a daily basis.

Do you have an exercise tip or trick you can share?
