Ask the Trainer: Cardio and Abs

By: Chad Ruf, Director of Personal Training

Question: Can cardio help with getting abs?

 

Answer: Having and showing abdominal muscles is a combination of good nutrition with smart exercise. For example, we all have a six pack underneath all of the skin and fat. If you just remove the fat layer, the muscles are there. Therefore, doing cardiovascular exercise, which helps you burn stored body fat, is a very effective way to get you to your goal. The best advice would be to continue to do cardio to burn stored fat, eat healthy to not add any more fat, and work your abs three days a week to help the muscle become more defined. Keep everything in balance and you will see results much faster!
