reshaping spoon body type
i know there is no way to effectively spot train, but i was wondering if it is possible to manipulate my body shape through directed exercise?
i am kind of a 'rake' on top: very long lean arms, 32A, small waist.... but i have always struggled with my lower half... ie: large inner things (no saddlebags, thankfully) and i seem to carry the extra weight in my bottom. unfortunately, this weight is definately no tlean muscle. my hips are still pretty lean, it just falls apart below my belly button. i run alot and do aerobics classes... as far as weight training is concerned, should i avoid or do squats (i have heard conflicting advice on this), cut back on high-impact cardio (like running)? i am 5'6" and 115 lbs. thanks. also, i have recently started eating carbs again (holy energy boost), but i dont want to go overboard... i have read on these boards i should eat carbs and protein together at every meal... roughly how many grams of carbs should i aim for? thanks.
