Can you stay under ~10%bf and still progress/bring up lagging areas via smaller bulks

For example, staying in a 10lb window. Taking it incredibly slow so you're still bulking for 95% of the year. I've been lifting for 4-5 years and have built a physique I'm finally proud of. I don't want to stay at a higher body fat just to ensure I'm making progress. I think why not go from...

Is it counterproductive to do multiple programs?

So my question would be this , while doing a 12 week program for body transformation would it be a waste to also start a jump training program at the same time? the jump program uses a lot of plyo workouts with a little weight lifting as well.
