I woudnt worry about keeping fat really low at the start. For ur height and weight you will need to bulk up to be a real bodybuilder hehe

I know... but getting weight affects my muscles... my abs are getting some of the fat I absorb and I'm a keeper...:))) I don't want to lose them

That will be extremely hard to keep :-) at some point a few extra perce tagesof fat will come. And bodybuilders arent about just abss. Abbs are worth nothing to a bb when you dont have the rest.

At your age and level body fat isn't an issue you need to work on getting slow and heavy lifting to built muscle make sure u do cardio after lifting and don't go overboard on running good luck it takes a lot of work
