Hi all, I'm an 18 year old male around 5'10" and 135 lbs (skinny by north american standards, but I guess not that bad by the rest of the world's standards).
Anyway, I started a weight training program about 2 months ago and have been working out at least every other day since I started. I try to work out all parts of my body but feel that I have been neglecting my abdominal area. I either bicycle/walk a few kilometers every day and eat a healthy diet.
My concern is that I am noticing a bit of belly fat (just a bit, I think) on my abdominal area. When I stand up and tuck/flex my stomach, it seems to be well-shaped. But when I slouch and completely relax my abdominal muscles, the stomach seems to be sticking out a bit (just a bit past nipples). When I sit down or bend over, rolls are visible.
Is this normal for a person of my description? Or do I have something to worry about? I guess I should step up the cardio, but what do you guys think?
By the way, I have been drinking a protein shake every day (with one scoop protein mix) with yogurt, milk and frozen berries.
I didn't really notice all this until I got a bit conscious about body build.
