Behind every sculpted six-pack, there's a three-part plan that includes clean eating, smart strength exercises, and fat-burning cardio. We've covered the most effective abs exercises more than once (Click here to see my absolute favorites!), but when it comes to melting off belly fat, is all cardio created equal? It's true you can burn calories doing just about anything that gets your heart pumping—jogging, biking, swimming, dancing, etc. But with this killer cardio routine, you'll torch more calories while also engaging your deepest core muscles (the ones responsible for pulling in that pooch)!
For a quick cardio burst, add 1 set of each exercise onto the end of your next strength workout. For an intense, 20-minute cardio session, repeat the entire circuit up to 6 times.
