I am a total fitness noobie I've no idea where to start, so I figured I might as well give a shot asking here. Most of you seem to know what you're talking about. Basically, I'm 5'11'' 140-145 lbs depending on what's in the tummy. Now, that might sound great on paper, in real life it's nothing at all. I've almost the bare minimum muscles required to move, so the rest of me is all flab. I can do 20 real pushups tops and 1 real pullup, and my shirtless gut is something to laugh at I recall someone saying something along the lines of becoming "skinny fat" and I suppose this is what I am. Now, what should I do first? Should I start cardio to lose the excess fat then start lifting to gain some muscle, or should I start lifting and hope that that'll boost my metabolism and get rid of the fat on it's own? I also read that it's not possible to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time... advise me!
