Unless your doing circuit training or a specific dvd, do your abs/core exercises first, then your strength, and then cardio LAST! Why: Because you'll put everything into the strength/ab exercises if you do them first. Your muscles will not be as tired, and it will reduce the likelihood of injury.
This is something I saw written by a personal trainer. He sets his workout like this: Abs Strength
Also, it has been said it takes you 15 minutes or so to burn fat. If you follow a workout this way, and have 15-30 minutes of strength & abs in, by the time you hit cardio your body is burning fat!

Computer abs tightening exercise is working for me.
I used coach Nicole's video and she stressed pull in the abs when walking. Many rainy days I did not walk outdoors. I did videos they are not so easy to pull in abs. I was doing an exercise at the computer and realised my abs are much tighter. Now i sit at the computer and lean back and keep the abs tight and it is helping me and easing the pain in my lower back Woohoo. It helps me I hope it might help you too.
