How much fat should I lose before I begin to lift weights?

I am 5’8 and weight around 162lbs. I am a guy. I have lost a lot of weight, but I have hit a plateau and still have some belly fat and chest fat. It is not that much though. My question is should I try to reduce my fat even more? I know that if you have much fat and you lift weights, the muscle grows under the layer of fat. I do not have much fat left .

    You should lift weights anyway, along with your cardio. Lift every other day (or two days in between) if you are doing a full body lift. The lifting and cardio together will help you lose weight and the muscles will get a nice jump start.

    You should do intense cardio for an hour every day and lift weights, and if you still arent losing weight or gaining muscle, then you are at your bosy’s pek condition. Don’t eat less than 1500 calories, and eat lots of protein.

    congrats on the weight loss! :]

    i think when you lift weight you actually loose fat and gain more muscle and also the more muscle you get the more fat you’re burning!
    so i think lifting weights is good but dont overdo it
    start with cardio first to warm up for 25 minutes cardio and then do the weights after that

    Start lifting weights now! I don’t know why you are waiting. It will help you lose weight faster and knock you off of that plateau! The more muscle you build, the more calories your body will burn.

    Be cautious when you start lifting weights, don’t believe everything you hear about weight lifting and supplements and such. Here is a link to an article I just wrote for people who need help starting a weight lifting routine—7-Simple-Tips-to-Kick-Start-Your-Weight-Lifting-Workouts&id=2418653
