| | Losing fat in problem areas
I gained a bunch of weight like 5 years ago, then ended up working off most of the fat like 1 and a half years ago. I've been focusing more on gaining muscle since then, and I'm at 17% body fat, but I have some fat leftover in problem areas that's stopping me from having the exact shape I want to get.
For awhile, since I was just working on muscle growth, I was neglecting cardio at the gym. Recently, I've started doing 30 minutes of cardio 3 times a week. I'm thinking of stepping up my cardio to 100-130 minutes a week, but I've been gaining strength at a fast pace, and I don't want to lose it. I'm trying to think of extra meals I can eat with plenty of protein to make sure I don't lose muscle, but lacking in the fat department. I don't have much fat left, but the fat loss isn't happening nearly as fast as it was when I first started working out. I'm trying to hurry it up and get down to 10-13% body fat.
Any tips for working fat off problem areas without losing significant strength or mass?
