Im about to wrap up my cardio this week . my attempt at building muscle with a low body fat % begins this weekend . things that i have to buy in preparation are 1 weight gain powder 2 whey protein powder 3 weight lifting belt/gloves.
currently 5’5 1/4 153lbs aiming for 170 lbs
MY QUESTION is how do i maintain a low body fat % while being in a calorie surplus ? cardio slims my arm muscles too much and i want to get bigger while staying lean
