    If you do not cut sensibly, then yes, you will lose weight, muscle, and strength.

    However, there is NO reason why you should lose muscle and strength whilst cutting. The PRIMARY TARGET of cutting should be to MAINTAIN THE MUSCLE MASS THAT YOU HAVE. Losing BODYFAT is SECONDARY. And you ONLY want to lose bodyfat. You will lose weight if you are losing bodyfat; however, I would NOT recommend looking at WEIGHT losses, but concentrate on FAT loss. Strength does not have to be lost; losing weight does not correlate to strength loss.

    15-20% bodyfat is pretty high for a male. I wouldn't recommend guesstimating your body composition unless you KNOW what you look like at different bodyfat levels.

    If you're looking to lose fat, check out The 3 Keys to Fat Loss and do some personal research and reading. You need to find what works for YOU re fat loss; there is no 'one size fits all' for it.

    If you can see your abs, then at your height and weight you're not 15-20% bodyfat. And if you're 17 then concentrate on learning how to manipulate your nutrition and training to achieve the results that you want. It's not hard to do.

    Read the article linked above.

    I also suggest making sure you have yourself a trainer/coach, who will guide you in your sporting endeavours. If you do not have one, then I believe you're missing out on a lot.

    just continue training how you are but add cardio and change your diet up a bit. if u wanna change your training, go with higher reps.
