Question Is it easier to slash body fat if you can lift heavier?

I'm somewhat new to the gym. First day was about a year ago, and I was only ever going whenever I felt like it (so like, 5 random days a month on average) and was eating trash, so no surprise I was making little to no progress whatsoever. Now that I've left school, I've started to train with...

Cut after bulking?

Hi everyone. I've spent the past 15 months losing fat and I'm down to about 15% BF. I'd like to get to about 8%-10% BF. I'm interested in switching gears to start gaining muscle mass. Would it make more sense to get to that 8-10 % BF goal before I start looking to add muscle mass? Or could I...

Start a lean bulk, or keep cutting? (Pics included, BF% estimates appreciated)

Attached are two current pictures of my physique. Sitting at 6'1" (185.4 cm) and 180 pounds (81.65 kg). No pump, but feeling pretty depleted from a keto diet, albeit the lighting is pretty nice here. I'm guessing I'm around 13% BF here but I'm also not positive, might be higher. Any opinions...
