A Few Questions
Ok so im tring to loose my body fat and gain some lean muscle. Had a few questions.
Is 1 hour of cardio a day 7 days a week to much?
How many days should i train abs, right now im doing them inbetween sets almost every day i lift which is 5 days a week.
is it bad or ok to eat red meat/steak 2 times a week. My diet is very good right now mostle fish and chicken and veggies.

do you train arms every day? then why would you do that to your abs? it's just another muscle group.
red meat twice a week? yea why not, choose lean cuts.

I think everyother day is ok as long as your not doing like 45 min ab sessions.

You should have atleast one day a week where you arn't participating in any exercises such as cardio or weight lifting.

thats too much cardio u will loose strength and burn out doing anythign 7 days a week.
Train abs 4 days a week obliques and leg raises one day. overhead crunches another day.

It is a common mistake that cardio and 7 day per week abs are key to "losing body fat". I remember wanting that six pack and thinking cardio and abs were the key..... not true.
First to address the everyday abs. You already have abdominal muscles! If you can't see them its not cause they aren't there, its cause there is fat covering them up! I works abs 2x/wk. - that is sufficient IMO.
As for the cardio, I don't think the cardio hurts. I mean cardio increases your calories burned and thus increases fat loss. However, cardio is a drop in the bucket compared to diet. The right diet can leave you with a 0.2-0.4 lb. fat loss daily! Intense cardio for 1 hour maybe will burn 800-1000 calories, which is 0.2 lb. fat (assuming the entire calorie deficit is all fat).
Bottom line, to lean out focus on the right diet. Good luck bro.
Back.... for real this time
