    Am I cutting properly?

    Hey, I’m fairly new to the cutting and bulking regiment and I wanted to make sure that I am losing fat while trying to preserve muscle. I started at a very low body fat and built up to around 15%, I then thought it was time to cut. I have lost around 8-9 pounds in like 3 months and have cut 2.5% body fat, but this seems like a lot of weight to lose for such little body fat lost. (I’m getting my body fat using a Renpho scale) I will post my workout schedule and caloric deficit below.

    Age:19
    Caloric Defecit: 300
    Workout:
    M: Chest
    T: Back
    W: Cardio
    T: Chest
    F: Legs/Shoulders
    Sat: Arms (Bi and Tri)
    Sun: Cardio
    I do abs everyday and try to eat as clean as possible.

    I would love to know if this is a normal amount of weight lost for such little body fat lost and if there’s anything I’m doing that will make me lose muscle.

    don't use a random scale to measure your bodyfat

    you can also do a 500 deficit most likely

    What’s the best way to measure body fat? I agree that the scale probably isn’t the best.

    Don't even try. Just monitor your weight and your strength. In the long run these are the things that matter the most. You can also measure your waist with a tape measure and look in the mirror.

    Be aware that all of these methods are subject to day to day variations in water weight. Just remember that fat and muscle take time to come or go. Water weight can shift one way or the other overnight.

    Don't get into trying to figure out BF % and get away from your bro split training.
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    If you are cutting just do workouts of 3 or 4 sets of major compound lifts (Standing OH Press, Deadlifts, Squats, Bend over row, Bench Press, Lat Pull Down (or Weighted Pull-ups), Etc.) 3-4 times/week.

    And ignore your scale for anything other than how much you weigh.
