I have been really hitting the gym for the past month and a half, and I need to burn off that xtra flab around my stomach, I currently do a 5min skipping warm-up and sometimes I will run for about 10mins, but thats because I do alot of super and tri sets in my weight lifting, so I was just urious whats a good cardio plan.

intense cardio. everyday. cardio is extremely important and i guarantee you that your 5 min warm up and 10 minuet jog isnt even close to enough. you dont have to go run for an hour or nothing but you need to incorporate about 20 or more minuets of hard cardio such as interval training or tabbata. you will see much better results in your weight training and your physique. intense cardio will burn much more calories and more importantly much more body fat. its better to do your cardio after your weight training but if you can try doing your cardio 1st thing in the morning before breakfast. thats when your glycogen levels are at their lowest and your body will burn the most body fat. if you talk to a pro body builder youll find that they do a ton of cardio. its very good for you muscles. and dont let people tell you cant build muscles if you do cardio cause they obviously dont know sh!t. another thing that needs to be addressed if you want to get rid of the love handles and thats nutrition. you need to eat 5 to 6 meals a day, each meal needs to include starchy carbs like potatoes, corn, oatmeal, whole wheat. fibrous carbs like any kind of veggies and a lean protein like chicken turkey eggs or fish. by doing this you will build your metabolism and there for constantly burn fat throughout the day because your body will always be in an anabolic state. caffeine, sugar and alcohol should be avoided especialy sugar. be careful with fruit because they are have alot of fructose so go easy. try to take in about 1.5 to 2 grams of protein per pound of body weight for example if your 150lbs you need roughly 300 grams give or take. protein shakes will help you get your protein levels up but make sure its a good protein with low fat and as little sugar as you can find. remember not to be afraid of carbs. thats where you get your energy to train hard, they are not the enemy as some like to believe. good luck
