I am reaching the end of my cut and would like to know any ways to get rid of that last bit of stubborn bodyfat that just doesn't seem to want to go away. I have been following a dieting regime similar to that of Built's (Besides meal 1, I need carbs in the morning in order to write well at school during the day). It is as follows;
Meal 1: P+C
Meal 2: P+F
Meal 3: P+F
Meal 4 (Pre-workout): P+C
Meal 5 (Post-workout): P+C
Meal 6: P+F

Protein sources:
-protein blend shake
-chicken breasts
-lean beef steaks
-fish (tuna, salmon, trout, etc)
-cold cut turkey/chicken/beef

Carb sources:
-oats
-whole wheat bread

Fat sources:
-peanuts
-natural peanut butter
-olive oil


*lots of vegetables are eaten as well


My workout split is currently:
Day1: Push
Day2: Pull
Day3: Legs/Abs/Cardio (Hiit)
-Repeat Cycle-

I am probably around 9-10% body fat now, and do consider myself a fairly expirienced bodybuilder. I am looking for that final tip to get down to the real low percentages. At this point I think that dropping calories further is not the answer, as risk of losing muscle mass may come into play.

Have you tried UD2?

Was thinking about it...what kind of time commitments do I need to make? I am still a student, and exams are just around the corner.

I am still a student, and exams are just around the corner.UD2 is a relatively STRICT diet, so that may not be the best option for you at the moment. Though it would be great for the goal you are seeking. If you can dedicate yourself to the diet, it should be fine, but perhaps you should start when exams are over.

Do you have any off days? Have you had any scheduled refeeds?

Time's not a big deal.

It's more of a food commitment, lol.

Though the Day 1/Day 2 depletion workouts can take up a bit of time and the carb loads require lots of attention.

30mins at most, and who said they need to be in a gym?

I did it last summer while taking classes. Your body gets use to it. Your mind gets use to it, etc.

if you're at 11% why don't you just add in some HIIT

you don't NEED UD 2.0 to get down lower

"lose" muscle :thumbup:

why don't you just decrease cals 100-200 below maintenance...it'll be a very SLOW loss, but you'll protect your LBM (and still keep your protein at 1.5g per lb LBM)

Um.

So you're trying to CARDIO off the rest of the fat? You'd be better off dieting it off.

I went back to doing HIIT this week and it killed my legs and my abs. I could barely do warmups on my squats the next day lol.

You've probably reached the point where more radical approaches are necessary, try UD2.0

HIIT should work fine with the same diet. U.D. 2.0 at the end of a cut would be harsh but if you choose not to do HIIT its probably your best option.
