Non-troll response: I know you lose mass and strength but how significant is it if you don't go for maintenance for a while, particularly if you're still lifting heavy and eating significant protein
PS That ridiculous pullup gif is always on the right now thanks jarude

i dont think there's any specific answer to that. as long as you dont cut your intake in half overnight, i wouldn't fuss too much over it. i went from static cals over maintenance with a strength routine into a zig-zag type deficit doing a volume routine and i didn't lose that much strength and my size held up pretty well too, although that was more a function of my routine than diet i would say.

whatever the cause, i think the two steps forward/one step back in regards to gaining of size and strength and then sacrificing some for body composition is well worth it. you've been at it long enough to know that you'll be ahead in terms of strenght and size in the long run, so i wouldnt stress

and you're welcome nod[1].gif

Only thing I'd correct here is his head position. Better to keep the spine neutral.

You've lost sight of the ball here. Injuries don't come from insufficient stretching before a workout. Injuries come, by and large, from working out with poor form. The purpose of pre-workout stretching is to mobilize the things that might keep an athlete from achieving good form during a workout. Pre-workout stretching is not a "must do" for everyone, every time. It only serves to attack specific mobility problems that may prevent an athlete from performing movements accurately. 

 

I do think regular mobilization should be a part of most athletes routine, but it doesn't need to be extensive, or right before a workout. If an athlete already has very good mobility, and regularly lifts with good form and full range of motion, the need for extra mobilization work is greatly reduced.

The biggest thing I lost on my last cut was ability to do reps. My maxes didn't go down at all. For example, pre-cut if I could do X weight for 6 reps, at the end of the cut I might only be able to do it 3-4 reps.

True. I don't stretch before workouts, mostly after or during the nights at home. I do soft tissue work then mobility in the area I'm about to lift in.

You could try doing a sort of recomp in that transition period.
Eat + 20% on workout days and - 20% on rest days if you work out every other day. Exact percentage don't matter as long as it's +-0 cals for the week for maintaining weight.

This is the way the typical IF setup works and it's supposed to help you build strength while keeping or even lowering your bodyfat.

I'm already doing a version of it now during my bulk (maintenance on rest days, +1000 cals on workout days) and it's great so far. When transitioning into cut I'm first going to drop cals on rest days and only at the last stages on workout days, so it's a -30 and +10 for example. Should minimize strength loss.

I understand the principals of CBL, but there has to be a cleaner way to do this. No one with an interest in nutrition ought to be eating oreas, cheese cake, pizza, and ice cream. There are lots of good starch source out there that will get you the carbs you need without shoveling crap down your mouth like this.
