Sup guys...I'm about 5'9 about 155 around 8-10 percent body fat, i'm trying my damnest to get to 4-6 percent but can't seem to accomplish my goal. Any tips? My diet is pretty good and cardio is amazing. But I lose weight so easily if I really diet hard. Trying to get a cut look instead of a skinny look. Any thoughts???

Dude I'm 210lb, I have earned the right to cut. Even then I won't cut below 10%/190lb, what ever I get to first.
Bulk now." The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

king if you wanna drop id go for more lean meals but genetics play a big role in dropping bf also. id stick with protein shakes and chicken/broccoli when i run that diet i drop to as low as 5-8% and ive done it 3 times.. and i dont compete i usually do it when summer comes around and then bulk out for winter like a bear

I did martial arts for several years (karate) and they there were quick guys that'd get a few points off you, but as soon as you gave they a big hit or threw them to the mat hard they were useless and lost all their fight.
Bulk up, keep working on the speed work, lose some pace but become a better all-round competitor.
