So which is better, jogging or running?

This question has no one correct answer, it really depends what benefits you are looking for, if you are looking to lose weight then jogging is better. At lower intensities, cardio relies primarily on burning fat, as intensity increases (running) you body starts to use up glycogen (effectively carbs) instead, these carbs are quickly replaced upon eating so there is no weight benefit in terms of weight loss from the higher intensity. Jogging at a slower pace allows you to jog for longer and therefore burn more fat!

If you're just looking to get fit i.e. faster/recover quicker, then running would be better, even better than running would be high intensity interval training (HIIT)which has recently been found to be the best way to get the most for your time, i.e. get fit quick!

Faq - How Can I get a Six Pack

You don't need any special equipment really, do these seven exercises Seven ab exercises on a regular basis and you'll have solid abs in no time!!

Cardio might be needed to burn off any excess fat covering the abs to reveal the muscles (6 pack) beneath them! Without the cardio exercise to burn off the fat you may have brilliantly strong abs but no six pack as the fat 'hides' the muscles.

Good luck

FAQ - How can I get a flat stomach and a tight bum?

Well firstly, I would recommend any general cardio activities. Relatively low intensity cardio is the best way to burn fat stores in your body. Therefore cardio will help you lose any fat on you stomach and bum (as well as the rest of your body). To tone the bum and stomach, area specific exercises to strengthen the aforementioned muscles are needed.

To get a flat stomach, I would recommend stomach crunches as the simplest way of isolating your abs. For 7 great abs exercises check out 7 Ab Exercises …all the crunches you could ever need.
For the bum, cycling is brilliant, especially if you can clip your feet into the pedals as this allows you to pull up on the pedals as well (working your hamstrings as well as glutes), this kills two birds with one stone as it also provides you with the aforementioned cardio exercise. Other bum exercises e.g. get down on your hands and knees then lift one leg off the ground and straighten your leg behind you lifting it up and into a horizontal position, repeat this exercise perhaps 20 reps and you should feel it working your bum, then repeat on the other side.
This'll keep you going for the time being, a load more info can be found at Fat Burning Time
Best of luck
