    Should I Continue Cutting or Lean Bulk For Summer?

    Hey guys - Long time reader, first time poster. I am kind of in a bind here. I started going back to the gym again about two months ago after taking a very, very long hiatus. I was pretty skinny fat when I started lifting in December (probably about 18/20% BF). I have been tracking my macros, hitting the gym 5/6 days a week and doing consistent cardio. I decided I wanted to drop my BF % a bit before lean bulking. I am currently eating 400 calories below my maintenance and eating on average 180 grams of protein per day. I think I was able to make some noob gains and lose some body fat. My question is, based off my pictures, would you recommend I keep cutting or lean bulk? Also, what bf % do you currently think I am at? I want to look good this summer, I have a baby coming this September so this might be my last time to be selfish for a while. Thanks in advance for the recommendations!
