Should I do more cardio if I´m not losing the fat covering my muscle?

Not Losing Fat, Increase Cardio?

If you are not losing fat, and therfore still cannot see the muscle you have been building, doing more cardio will not necessarily be the answer. In fact, doing too much cardio will cut into your muscle gains, as your body will begin to dip into your muscle mass for fuel as you begin to use up the supply of carbs your body has available. Therefore, more cardio may help you lose weight, but it may be muscle weight, not the fat weight you want that loss to be.
