    Unhappy Skinny Fat

    I just started working out again-I'm petite but my body type has become skinny fat >.< I've finally started to tone up and am able to see some definition. I'm not sure what the best mix of cardio and strength training should be. Right now I lift 4 times a week, not sure if I should be doing cardio on the same days or if I should be doing cardio less. My husband says I should be doing cardio each time I lift but won't I have a harder time gaining muscle if I do that?

    If you are trying to gain muscle I would drop all cardio and increase calories to above maintenance and focus on intense and heavy lifting focused around the big lifts.

    As far as I know, to gain muscles, you must increase your calories.

    Not a female but ive been skinny fat. Do wut Megdaig said.
    "History is written about lions but is told by zebras for zebras."
    These are the things  that determine whether youll make it or not.
    High clavicle = Youll never make it.
    High quads = Youll never make it.
    Short bicep= Its unlikely youll make it but you can try
    Short tricep= Harder to make it but maybe
    High calves= QUit now
    High lats = youll never make it
    Tis the season to get bulky.
    =never gonna make it crew=
