    How to get low Body Fat??

    I am quite happy with my current muscle mass. However it feels all flabby and soft. I have been reading a few threads in this forum and it prob means that i have a high body fat percentage.

    This is probably why im finding it hard to get abs/ that rip in the middle of the chest. I am doing a 3 days split routine with no cardio at all. I might need to alter my diet and do a bit of cardio.

    Can anyone advice me on any of those two topics
    1) cardio and
    2) diet
    for a person that hasnt believed in cardio all his life and wants to start it?

    I want to achieve a low body fat (in other words be CUT)

    cheers in advance

    Bro, before any one else jumps down your throat (can and may happen any way) do a search on this site. LOTS of info on those two topics.

    But in short (and i mean short):
    diet: eat less calories than the amount you'd need to maintain current body weight (if you don't know how to calc this, do a search)

    cardio: on off days if possible. get your heart rate up and maintain it up for 15+ minutes.

    SEARCH for it and ye shall find it.

    Peace

    Focus more on your diet. Cardio helps speed the process

    Burning Fat

    You want to keep your protein intake high. At least 1 gram protein for every pound of lean muscle so that you do not lose the muscle that you already worked hard to put on. 40% of calories per day from Protein.

    Carbs. You still need carbs - about 30% of your dailing intake of calories from carbs. Eat them early on in the day. Never eat food with carbs by itself. Eat with a source of protein.

    FAT - Don't forget about essential fatty acids. These are good fats your body needs. 30% of your calories from EFA.

    Eat 6 times per day to keep your metabolism high. (Meal Replacement Supplements will help you out here)

    Do interval training cardio instead of a steady pace cardio. Try this 20 minutes on the stair climber or tredmill:

    5 minute warm up light pace

    1 minute full out
    1 minute slow to medium pace

    Repeat for 20 minutes.

    This will help get rid of that extra fat.

    Hope this makes sense.
