    Best Cardio for Abs?

    What do you think the best cardiovascular exercise is for helping develop abs?

    I was jumproping up and down hills yesterday, I think I achieved a better ab workout than I have ever had in the gym.

    cardio helps you lose fat, low bodyfat allows your abs to be seen, cardio does not build muscle, weightlifting builds muscle. so if you want to develop the abdominal muscles, excercises that contract them against weight. running is cardio, cardio doesn't build muscle.

    I beg to differ, I bet running does help to tone and tighten your abs. Running = cardio, are you saying running doesn't build your legs? Before I ever started weightlifting I used to sprint and do XC, my legs were huge.

    And yes, I understand the concept of low bodyfat making abs visible.

    I agree with you. Cardio builds muscle. Not necessarily the same as BB'ing, but it does.

    Depending on the cardio you do, you can build type I or II fibers with cardio.

    And for abs, many forms of cardio will get you some variation of ab work. When I was running constantly, my abs were pretty good. I had a little fat covering them, but they were rick hard. Obliques, too. And of course I had the runners legs. Cardio develops muscle.

    I would imagine jumping rope, hitting a heavy bag, rowing, and a number of individual sports would hit the abs pretty well. Even just hitting a tennis ball against a wall.

    Running wouldn't do the A+ job as those with some twisting, but same idea.

    Abs, calves, forearms = anything you do hits them to some degree.
