come on then bright sparks

ok, am doing some lifting 3 tiimes a week, am eating well and do football twice a week, but tjis will be down to once a week in a little while as the season ends.. I really want to lose a bit off my waist tho so i can see my abs a bit more...well see em at all wud be good. I lift in my garage and have no access to cv equipment. What would be the best cv work for me to do, running distance, shorter distance with bursts, cycling or what?????
I am thinking of taking up boxing, just for the training, i really dont want to fight. Would this be better for cv work or should i just join a gym and use all the machines???

cheers

    Running is good for the heart but bd for impact, not generally a good excercise for bodybuilders. I personaly take my Mountain Bike out for 30 mins around some hilss and mud, good work out and keeps the heart pumping.

    It is also a good idea to do 15 mins after a workout to rid the body of any Lactic acid

    u should clean up ur diet first, then add some cardio if u still need...i suggest to do HIIT...boxing is a good idea, do things u enjoy so that u can stick with it...u have 2 days football...so i dont think u need that much cardio or HIIT.....i suggest cleaning up ur diet and we'll take it from there

    i think the diet idea sounds good.

    everybody has got a six pack.
    just covered in a layer of fat for most people.
    i read somewhere that for a good six pack to show, you're body fat must be less than 13%

    don't know how far that is true, but i'd try sort out he diet then look at the cv

    the bf% to show the six pack depends on the person and how big the muscle is etc...the six pack will have a more rippled look if it is more built...easilier seen...

    i think my diet is ok really, i eat 5 meals a day, plenty of protein and carbs etc but all the right, clean foods. The only thing i slip up on is having a soft spot for beer and red wine.
