    How to get to 5 percent body fat..

    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???

    You don't have much muscle. Therefore, the only thing you wil be accomplishing is getting even skinnier. Bulk.

    In before "5'-11'' - 150lbs", I am bulking...

    ^^^ that

    You need to start eating and putting on weight.
    If you really are 8% you look fine and all your abs etc will be showing anyway, i don't understand what your deal with 5% is.
    Time to bulk, srsly.

    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.

    If you cut down to 5% they're just gonna throw you round the ring.

    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.
