I can’t seem to lose the fat I have on top of my lower abs. I look weird am very muscular for my age, am in no way trying to be a body builder or nothing but my body looks weird. You can see the abs clearly underneath, very well developed but there’s a layer of fat there that I can never lose. That’s the only clearly visible layer of fat I can find. I have around 7% body fat and am beginning to think that 7% is purely concentrated in my lower abs region. I do a lot of cardio since am in my school’s track team. Running intensely seems to be doing the job very slowly, but I also see my muscles start to fade in a way or get softer. Some guys at the gym were telling me that “you cannot be buff, and run a lot it’s either one or the other” that’s word for word what they told me, and I cannot deny it they look great. So now tell me how I can lose this small amount of persistent fat without losing muscle? And how can I lose fat specifically from that lower abs region. And yea I do a lot of abdominal exercises in fact I have a day at the gym where I only do abs, leg raises, knee tucks, and a lot more. But they aren’t doing the job they just seem to be toning the abs not getting rid of the fat. also i eat pretty well, lots of pretein, veggies, not alot of fat heavy foods.
