When it comes to resistance training, direct ab work should be left for the end of the workout. The reason for this is very simple. Most if not all exercises require a good deal of your abdominals in the exercise. Although it is true that exercises such as squats and deadlifts require more use of your abs, other smaller exercises such as bicep curls require abdominal stabilization.
What you do not want is for your strength during the exercise you are performing to be reduced. Starting a workout with abs or even performing abdominal exercises in the middle of your workout may hinder your muscular gains. Not to say it is completely wrong, but it is advised by our NJ in home personal training staff to leave ab work for the end of the workout. And remember, crunching away does not trim your waist!
