Abs have more to do with eating right than exercise. Everyone has abs, but most people have too much fat over them. No matter how many ab workouts you do, if you have over 15% bodyfat it won’t make a difference.

So to answer your questions:

1) Always give your muscle groups a rest after working them out. I generally do “pushes” one day (triceps, quadriceps, pectorals, calves, etc.), “pulls” the next (biceps, abs, hamstrings, etc.), and a day of rest.

2) Fruits, veggies, fish, and dairy. Cut back on red meat and sugar. And stay far, far away from fast-food

3) Jumping rope is a good way to get your heart rate up before exercising, but not much else

4) It depends on your bodyfat percentage, but generally having under 10% will get you noticeable abs.
