    I'm just wondering how to get the best results. I'm already skinny and I do some cardio and eat right. But I was just trying to figure out when is a good time to do an ab workout before or after meals or before you go to bed?

    Anytime you feel like it, but preferably as part of a larger workout routine.

    Nutrition should be 'round the clock. Your workouts should never be too far from a meal consumption either before or after. Don't scarf down a steak and immediately hop on a Bosu 2 minutes later to do abs, though.

    I find that if you eat or drink too much right before an ab workout, you're going to be nauseous because all of the ab exercises are making whatever's in your stomach slosh around a lot. From my experience, anyway...

    Yeah I just learned that the other day when doing a complete core routine immediately after a meal.
    But it wasn't my fault...fucking gym closes shortly after I get off work so I have to rush things to get there.

    Arent you supposed to wait a half hour after eating and eat a half hour after working out?

    The first being so the food doesnt hang around in your stomach, and the second because your parasympathetic nervous system has to kick in after a work out and begin producing all the secretions you need to digest the food and move it along with ahem peristaltic contractions ... of the .. ahem... tract???

    I haven't read up on the physiological reasons yet, but I do know that the 30 minute rule (before and after) can prevent some really uncomfortable feelings.

    For the body builders the best work out time is morning time and evening also,they should also take proper diet

    The rule of thumb is to first work on the weaker stomach....my abs are strong so I leave to the end.
