Hey, im currently bulking. When I bulk I have about 13%body fat. I would like to lean for the summer, but the one thing over all I cannot do is lose muscle. I hit the gym hard three times a weak, and do cardio three times a week out of the gym. If I cut to like 7 or 8%bf will I be at any risk of losing muscle?

try shooting for a smaller deficit. just as obese people have no trouble losing fat at multiple pounds per day, its extremely difficult for someone lighter and at a lower body fat to lose fat...
however, if you eat at small deficits like 250-500 instead of 500-700 calories per day, this should resolve any issue as far as losing muscle.
also LIFT HEAVY and EAT TONS OF PROTEIN.http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=492749
