do a lot of abs, and your upper body workout should consist of decent weight and high reps.

When do you plan on acheiving your goal by?

cardio cardio cardio - if u want that look your BF% has to be under 8%

I'd suggest something to the affect of:

Day 1: Push
Day 2: Cardio/Abs
Day 3: Pull
Day 4: Cardio/Abs
Day 5: Legs

Watch your diet, eat healthy, and your good to go- simple formula is: Intake Calories - Burned Calories = negative number

As long as your burning more then your taking in, you'll lose weight

you may not be fat, but if your like me, then your BF% is still around 10% which means you can abs of steel, but they won't show through b/c you still have a layer of fat padding them...

You can always do something like my plan

Day 1: warmup cardio, stretch, warmup lift, Chest, Tris, Shoulders, abs, cardio, cooldown

Day 2: repeat with Back and Bi's instead of chest/tris/shoulders

Day 3: repeat with Quads, Hams, and Calves (basically legs)

Day 4: Repeat day 1

Day 5: Repeat day 2

Day 6: Repeat day 3

My ab workout is pretty extensive - consists of:
5 sets of 20 weighted crunches on the swiss ball
5 sets of 25 weighted incline situps
5 sets of 20 leg raises
5 sets of 20 bicycles

If you can still lift your body after this then your a better man then I
