I heard you can do abs everyday...is that true?

I heard you can do abs everyday...is that true?

"Muscles responsible for maintaining an upright posture (such as your deep abdominal stabilizers) are used to working all the time. But my ab excercises, like a crunch, neglect these muscles and stress the rectus abdominis, a muscle that needs time to recover. Crunching everyday overtrains your abs. Try the plank instead...It challenges your postural muscles, so you can perform it frequently-even everyday-for a stronger core."
