Hi, if you want abs, you should do some cardio to lower your body fat. Once that happens, your abs will be noticeable with exercise. Protein powder is not necessary but for muscle you need to consume a good amount of protein (meat, lentils, nuts, eggs). Protein powder is just a way to get your daily fix of it but you can do what you need to do without it.

I think jogging is better if you can because treadmills kind of help you along. If it's all you have, though, it's definitely acceptable. Plus, treadmills tell you how many calories you've burned. You should count calories using an app like myfitnesspal. This will help you keep track of what you eat and how much you burn. However, I've recently learned about the BMR and TDEE. Those might be more accurate numbers. That can be determined later though.

Though protien powder is not necessary sometimes protien itsself is very essential protien is th building blocks for muscler growth with heavy resistence training their is a greater need for protien withen th next 24 hours of workout due to protien synthesis and muscle breakdown protien aids n recovery new growth adaptations and replinishing used energy stores tht were depleted during exercise ..roughly athletes and those involved in resistance training need more protien thn those who r not ...yes ths can come frm our daily food but our bodies withen th first 10 minutes after exercise is th best window for our bodies to absorb those nutrients and studies show tht those who consumed protien with a good carbohydrate soure had better performance thn those who didn't...better performance in th gym =successful results n th gym...protien powder is easier to to pack to th gym for tht 10 min window thn ur chicken breasts and protien powder goes down faster to ...protien powder is a supplement...its a training tool....pre nutrition before going to th gym and post nutrition after training is cruical...how u do it will determine ur results but wat kind doesn't matter rather ur source is protien powder or not as long as ur body is getting wat it needs...for me i use protien powder its easier for me to get my recomendation tht way but u knw wats best for u
