So I am thinking of commencing a muscle building program, but I am not sure if I should start now. Ever since I started going to the gym, my goal has always been trying to lose weight and maintain a lean body. I have definitely made progress, and I am satisfied with how I look now, but I feel like my body fat percentage might still be too high. A trainer once told me that it is better to cut down the fat by losing weight first, rather than gaining weight and muscle. What do you guys think about this? I am 5'8, about 152 pounds, I haven't measured my body fat percentage in a while but my guess is that it is over 12%. Thanks for any advice!
