I agree with cardio being important, but high intensity cardio burns muscle not fat. You have to do longer periods of low intensity cardio to stay lean. If you do 30 minutes of high itnensity, you are hindering your progress.

As far as training abs. If you are doing things like squats, or off balance weight exercises then you are training your abs already.

If you really want to lose fat, and keep muscle look into the Dave Palumbo cutting diet. I have used it, and saw insane results. Lots of people use it for getting ready for competition to lose down to 3% body fat, but keep their physique. It's tough to follow, but worth it.
