It’s a fact. Looking good naked requires visible abs. Abs are man’s aphrodisiac, the center of your physique and one of the few muscles that chicks actually care about. That’s just the way it is. So, how do we get visible abs? One of the arguably most popular answers that come to mind is ‘cardio’ and that’s what I’m going to discuss in this article: the most effective cardio protocol for body recomposition. Most articles on this topic center around the pros and cons of traditional cardio, as in aerobic or low intensity steady state cardiovascular exercise (LISS), compared to high intensity interval training (HIIT), so I don’t want to go into that too much again. Rather, I’m going to take a more fundamental approach to the topic and discuss why we should (not) do cardio in the first place.
