Cutting progress is slow, but my primary goal is maintaining muscle mass so I'm pretty much at 1.5lb/week. Cutting for 12 weeks now... any tips?

Good mass definitely. I think another 5 - 10 lbs of fat and you will look amazing. Ive been carb cycling and have been keeping as much mass as I can. I am down to 172 from 190. Its been going really well. Not sure I have as much mass as u though. I got stuck around 10% bf so I started adding in spin class which is 1hr cardio about 2 times a week...

What was your routine like?

ROUTINE: This is a copypasta from past bulking thread so there might be some changes, but overall, pretty much the same.

Chest:
BB bench 5x5
DB incline 3x8-12
DB flat/decline 3x12-15 (since I already went flat for BB, I went light and focused much more on form and the
DB flies 3x8-12
Weighted dips 3x8-12
Cable crossovers 4x8-12 (2 with it set lower, 2 set higher)
Two random tri exercises (skullcrusher/pushbacks/rope pulldowns) Went super light.

Back:
Deadlift 5x5
Bentover Rows 5x5
Pullups 4xdead (2 hammer grip, 2 wide grip)
Lat Pulldowns 3x12
T-bar rows 3x12
Two random bi exercises, really light just to kill it.

Shoulders/traps/abs:
Standing military press 5x5
DB shoulder press 3x12 s/s with Front raises
Arnold press 3x12 s/s with Lateral raises
Bentover rear deltoid raises 3x12
DB shrugs 3x12
Upright rows 3x12
Random ab exercises, mostly weighted situps on the decline. Hanging leg raises and windshield wipers too.

Legs/calves:
Squats 5x5
Stiff legged dead lift 5x5
Hack Squats or Leg Press or Lunges, I like to switch this one up. 3x12
Leg extension machine 3x12 s/s with leg curls
Standing calf (go reaaally slow, no bouncing, wait 2 seconds at top of stretch) 3x12
Seated calf machine (same rules as above) 3x12

Arms:
Close grip bench press 3x12 s/s with Standing dumbbell curls
Skullcrushers 3x12 s/s with Preacher curls
DB tricep extension 3x12 s/s with standing ezbar curls
Rope pulldowns 3x12 s/s with standing cable curls (holding a pulley in each hand, flex towards head), or cable curls
Random forearm work

I rest on weekends, except I do abs if I feel like it, which I usually do.

looking good bro. You are similar to me. I'm 5'9" 198lbs (now 196) and I'm starting to cut like you. Although, I think i have more fat and you have more mass.

I think you look good and I'm hoping my cut will be as successful as yours. Repped.

I'll be honest I am jelouse. I know you put a lot of hard work in it and you deserve it. Just curious, what is your diet? on "ON" season and "OFF" season.
And, keep on the good work, you look great!

My diet is pretty much the same bulking and cutting just smaller portions and I cut the milk when I start cutting. A lot of oats, whey, steak, quinoa, chicken, sweet potatoes, greek yogurt.

Any guesses on bf?
