    Morning Cardio

    do i have go out and walk to loose the fat? isnt there any other way to get the cardio? its hard to go out and walk when its over -20 degrees celsius

    is it ok to train the abs instead? ie crunches, leg raises and twists not with any weight, just to failure.. and doing that about halv an hour EOD or E3D?

    ill dont think it will be overtraining, its just stimulates the abs and you are doing something to burn cals. please give me some feedback on this.

    Doing abs will not even come close to doing the work of cardio. Try to find somewhere indoors where you can walk, or invest in a treadmill or stationary bike.

    Get your ass outside!!! When it's really cold you burn WAY more calories. Just dress accordingly and go hard.

    I used to run in the winter, but with all the ice and snow, it just got too **** frustrating.

    Yeah don't let the cold weather hold you back from reaching your goals. Do what I did and buy yourself a recumbertant bike. You can get a good one for 200 bucks.
