Default Cardio/Abs day

Quick question.

I'm just finalizing the setup of the 13 week fat burning program from this site, I need to tweak some of the exercises a tiny bit for what I can do with my home setup.

The Abs/Cardio day says to do Abs, and then Cardio? Where does that leave time for a PWO? I'm going to get plenty of Cardio from my sports (hockey & tennis) so should I squeeze in my abs on one of the other days?

I don't want to neglect a PWO on the day i'm doing my abs because those muscles need feeding as well.

I'm not sure I can fit in an entire Ab workout on one of the other days but I could probably split the exercises between two days. Since i'm only training ~3 times a week there should be enough rest in between.

Day 1 - Chest, back, shoulders, traps
Day 2 -biceps, triceps, forearms
Day 3 - Legs

Don't sweat the minutiae. You could have a PWO after the cardio, or you could have it during.

But I would definitely consume less carbs since it is only abs (a small muscle group) and you are trying to lose weight right now.

As you mentioned, splitting abs up between two days seems to work as well.
