If I'm doing muscle exercice, Am I going to lose weight or gain weight? If I'm 5'4 and 160lbs

U will lose fat and gain muscle which weighs more. As long as ur eating healthy then u will have muscle weight gain

Something that I do to gain muscle and lose weight, is to do strength training followed by cardio. This allows all of your current energy supplies to be used during the strength portion which will be used to build muscle, and then the cardio will start using up the fats/carbs stored in reserve. If you do cardio first, then you are at risk of not having enough energy to properly do the workouts and/or gain muscle. Remember to eat a meal after any good workout to feed that new muscle! Good luck!

Hey Melissa,
Karen answered your first question perfectly...I might help with next one

"Exercise and physical activity fall into four basic categories — endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility. Most people tend to focus on one activity or type of exercise and think they're doing enough. Each type is different, though. Doing them all will give you more benefits. Mixing it up also helps to reduce boredom and cut your risk of injury."

For me, I like to do includ weighted workouts, different kinds of cardio(like running, dancing & skating), yoga & some martial art training. Mixing it up will trigger more muscles + stretching them up to avoid muscule cramps & end up with an overall healthy toned strong body.

Hope that answers your question...good luck
