Keep muscle while cutting?

Home  \  Forums  \  Training and Advice  \  Keep muscle while cutting?
Hey I'm 14, 5'10" 180 pounds, I started last year at 210 pounds and got down to 160 last summer, now I started weight training and I'm 180, I want to get down to 160 because then il have 6-8% body fat, and have those abs ive always wanted haha anyway, I love weight training but i know to lose weight I have to do cardio, I was wondering can I continue weight training but add cardio but also cut down the calories? I take in about 2500-3000 calories a day and its enough to keep me building but not gain any fat, I was thinking about cutting down to 1200 because thats how much I lost to lose that weight from before, basicly I want to know if I cut the calories, add cardio and keep the weight training, will I lose the muscle? Also what should I do for cardio? I don't really know what to do for cardio because in the summer football was my cardio haha
