For the dudes cutting, what weight you cutting from? 170? 180? I am pretty happy at my new weight of 160 with good gains in str but minimal aesthetics. I think I maybe going for the Ripptoe look lul. From my experience though I think you dudes who cutting at under 200 maybe losing an advantage once you drop down to around my weight. I personally can't imagine dropping back to 150 lb. if anything I would try very hard to do a body recomp while maintaining at 160 +/- (I don't know if that is possible unless I cut from 170)
Haha dude, you're right next to me. I'm walking distance from work to the new stadium.
I cut from ~180 (started at 135 O_O) and am now sitting at ~163 with maybe a few weeks left. I wanted to try a slow bulk on a clean slate as opposed to going through a recomp at that weight. Plus, I got a vacation coming up and I ain't trying to cut on vacation
. I notice I lose BF quickly without the addition of cardio as long as my diet is dialed in. My strength gains have stopped and now I'm just trying to maintain my numbers without taking too much of a hit. Already notice myself struggling on my past PRs, but still hitting them with much more effort now... Like purple face, vein popping, frothing at the mouth effort.
