So i wanted to build some muscle, but if i have a layer of fat over it then it's next to pointless,
My plan was to eat 5 small meals a day, eating lean protein, complex carbs and vegetables. and drinking only water and a glass or so of diet coke..
I was also going to do a 3 day workout split,
Monday: Chest, shoulders and triceps
Wednesday: legs, glutes and abs,
Friday: Biceps and back
(upper body with a 8-12 reps, 3 sets, lower body 15-20 reps, 2 sets)
i was also wondering if i can still gain muscle whilst having a 500 calorie deficit per day.. (to lose fat)
also, should i do cardio on my rest days? if so, what cardio should i do (that wont burn muscle as well as fat)?
I know i have a lot of questions but i will be so grateful of any help you can offer, thanks!
