    Fat Loss Program and Cardio?

    April 3, 2018, 6:58 am

    For some context:  I have very little muscle mass and have been workong on losing fat (big beer belly).  I have been doing cardio (with a a few instances of lifting, pushups, or squats) and eating very clean with a caloric deficit for a over a month and have lost a significant amount of weight for the short time. I didn;t have a scale at first, but I look a lot different. I see my strength building also, so I wanted to do more dumbbell and full-body type strength exercises while I still work on burning fat. 

    I have two questions:

    1) Is the 20 minute/day Fat Loss program enough to do by itself?  Should I be supplementing with other weight training?

    2) I enjoy doing cardio (cycling, because I tend to get shin splints).  Can I also do cardio, and how much / what days should I do?

     

    I just started the Fat Loss program yesterday - I did 20 minutes of a stationary bike and then Upper Body 1.  Again, I like cycling and it helps maintin my caloric deficit,  but don't know how it fits into this routine, with Lower Body days, rest, etc.

     

    Any advice would be appreciated!
