If you are trying to "get abs", you should keep in mind that it takes much more than just a bunch of crunches to get a toned stomach. A wide variety of cardio intensities and types (i.e. a combo of short duration HIIT, longer duration low impact, and everything in between), total body strength training, and a healthy diet are all key to getting a fat free belly. Having a healthy body fat percentage is essential to seeing any of those abdominal muscles that you work to develop.

Can you do abs workouts every day?
The core muscles are like any other muscle group; if you work them hard enough, they are going to need sufficient time in order to be able to heal themselves. Especially if you are sore from a previous abs workout, you should not work your core out over and over again, day after day. In all reality, even if that toned belly is your number one goal, in terms of actually reaching your goals, you are still better off mixing up different kinds of training types and focusing on a wider array of muscle groups.
