    Are you counting calories? If you're eating under maintenance you'll definitely be losing fat (not sure if around the stomach particularly). Cardio can't hurt either, but just remember you can't choose where you want to lose fat, over-time it will happen. Just keep going man.

    Work out your macros, eat about 500 calories under maintenance. Lift heavy to preserve muscle mass, do cardio if you enjoy it to burn up some calories
    I rape back measley reps, just ask in the comment section

    Lifting heavy doesn't preserve muscle mass, eating 0.8-1.5g protein per LBM does.

    It's all about diet here.

    Have you been losing any fat? If so just keep doing what you are doing and have patience. If you have been gaining fat or staying the same, eat less. Keep your protein and fats up and lower complex carbs to hit a calorie deficit. When you eat in a deficit for 3 days or so you will know it. You will feel a bit different and see rapid bf changes in the mirror.

    Haha, I wish I had your problems lol, you're already slim (compared to where im at). As aRan said, count your calories. The only way you'll lose that belly fat is by burning more cals than you take in. Theres no such thing as spot reducing fat.

    Just have to keep cutting with the calorie deficit. Doesn't look like you have much belly fat. I hear it gets much harder when you have less body fat, but I can't say I've ever had a very low bf anyway. Good luck.

    You may want to move away from the heavy lifting and move towards more of a lighter weight higher rep routine, as for building muscle(heavy lifting requires high calorie intake) you have to choose if you want size or lean-mass- cant have both when your attempting to burn that belly fat!! Also keep less rest time between sets- in turn keeping your HR high. Attempting to do cardio at least one more day a week will also have an impact.

    I'm on a cut now. Trying to lose 5kg all up so I can get my abs on show. Lost 2.5kg in 20 days from reduced food intake (didn't count macros) and cardio 5 times per week. You seem to have hit the point where the body refuses to budge/ moves very slowly. My cardio is out doors running which includes mix of: jump squats, bursts, straightline sprints and push ups in addition to regular jogging. I will cover about 5-6km each day. Weekends are reserved for heavy lifting.



    I don't know the exact answer, but what I am planning to do is to cut my food intake significantly. Two meals max per day. First meal around 11am and second meal right before weights (need the energy to get through).

    FWIW, I do predominately high rep sets (10-12) with weights about 90% of what I was lifting when on maintenance calories.

    I'm not too sure about LBM loss, but hey, I look better already an the muscle lines are beginning to show more clearly. 2.5 more kg would get me to the target.

    Good luck... try upping your cardio!

    OP, the human body is very interesting and unique. The difference between 10% and 15% for me is a little less than 7 lb of fat. However, 10 and 15 is a night and day difference. The difference will be less for you. Cut at a rate of 1 lb a week or .5 lb for 4-8 weeks and I'm confident you'll arrive at the end of the lit tunnel. Do not fear the possible!

    "I hate it when people say "Don't be so hard on yourself." Why not be hard on yourself? Be as hard on yourself as you can. Maybe just maybe it will get you up off your ass and help you accomplish a goal. If not, your weakness has won." ~ ME

    "There are no easy fixes in life. No magic beans. No Genie of the Lamp to wish yourself skinny. It takes hard work and dedication. Why don't people understand that?" ~ ME
