I am stick straight with no curves so I really want to try to get a butt, and I have a little too much fat on my stomach and would like to lose it, my problem is if I don’t do cardio and abs like crazy Imy butt just loses all the muscle and stays flat but if I don’t do cardio and abs my stomach still has fat on it, I work out everyday of the week and eat fairly healthy foods
Hi Alex, yes, in general if you keep the workouts crisp with active rest, if you are able to do so safely (this will get your heart rate up). However, it seems from your last comment that toning may be more important to you than pure muscle growth. If that is the case I would change what I said slightly… I would keep your calorie intake level to your burn, the 300 surplus I mentioned was to help you add muscle. I would still add resistance training and rest into your program but I would then keep the cardio as a component. I’d try to do resistance training 2-3x per week, but not on consecutive days. Good luck and have fun!!
