detrimental to my gymnastic training ( I am following a steady state cycle).
I typically follow an 80/20 paleo diet. I currently stand at 5"9, 185lbs, at less than 10% bodyfat. Is it possible to lose the fat without sacrificing my routine?
I doubt it's likely. Certainly possible, although 5% bf is near bodybuilding contest lean.

Tough to perform in any way, if you get what I mean, at that level of bodyfat.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball
