yeah of course you can keep near enough 99% of muscle and cut fat down but it will take longer.
the longer you cut, the more you can manipulate your diet and change things slowly while you reach different phases and your body reaches new levels, change cardio sessions, timings, and also change weight training.
if a person who has 18% and cuts to 10% in say 8 weeks, they will lose more muscle than the same person who does this in say 12-16 weeks.
but yeah, I know how you feel buddy, Im cutting as well and my shoulders dont look as full as before
still though, I want to see how it looks to be single bf % again. going to try and pretty striated this year, still a few weeks left, stick to the diet, cardio, then when it gets colders, ITS BULKING TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!
