I don't know but I'd like to know too! Maybe try squats instead of cardio?

Hi! A great way you can burn the fat whilst not losing the muscle is some endurance power sets!
So go for, say, sets of 45 seconds and do as many reps as you can, rest a third of your active time and go again. Do 3-5 sets and switch the type of contraction for the next set.

So if your first set is, for example, Crunches (flexion) the second exercises can be Russian Twists (rotation) or planks (isometric).
All about trial-and-error... You'll get there!
