I have gained 10 pounds in the last few months. I'm starting back exercising but I don't know if its best to just do cardio to burn calories? I don't want to do alot of weight and ab workout and work up that muscle and then end up having strong abs with fat on top. What is the best way to go?

I would do a good blend of both. It is very beneficial if you combine aerobic exercise (cardio), and anaerobic exercise (weight lifting). I would start out by doing a small warm up, and then stretching, follwing up with a low to moderate weight high rep full body weight routine and continued by at least 20-30 of cardio, and finished up by a cool down stretch. The cardio burns calories on the spot, and the weight lifting burns calories for a sustained period. The stretching cool down and warm up help to avoid injuries and help recovery. I hope that this has been helpful...
