Should I bulk or cut?

Hello, I've been on a slow cut for the past 3 months, I weigh around 75.5KG now, should I keep on cutting or bulk?

    What is your ultimate goal?

    You're roughly 17-20% body fat. Some recommend cutting to ~10% before bulking.

    The issue with further cutting is you may end up "skinny fat". Essentially, you need something to cut to (e.g. underlying muscle).

    I'd recommend beginning a progressive lifting program for at least a month and eating at maintenance, then re-evaluating.

    Generally, to get big and with definition. I'm still cutting until I reach a stage where I can safely bulk. I've tried bulking back when I weighed 73 KGs but I didn't see much success with it and my lifts didn't go up.

    I switched to Stronglifts 5x5 when I started cutting and now I'm here.

    Are you lifting consistently?

    Are you lifting consistently?

    Yes, I never miss my lifting sessions. I used to lift 5x days a week but I've toned it down to 4 since I started following 5x5. Here's my program:

    -Workout A:
    Squat 5x5 (35KG) (40) (45)
    Bench Press 5x5 (30KG) (35)
    Barbell Row 5x5 (20KG) (25)
    Pullup 3x10

    -Workout B:
    Squat 5x5
    Overhead Press 5x5 (20KG) (25)
    Deadlift 1x5 (65KG) (70)
    Chinups 3x10

    -Workout C:
    Tricep Dips 3x10
    Standing Calf Raise (50 KG) (60) 3 sets
    Donkey Calf Raise (>30reps) 3 sets
    Smith Machine Shrugs (50KG) 3 sets
    Dumbbell Shrugs (22.5KG) 3 sets
    Captains Chair Leg Raises 3x10

    I usually go Workout A, Rest, B, C, A and alternate between A and B the next week.
