fuck it i'm quitting over head press. it's so heavily written into 5/3/1, starting strength, greyskull LP that I never second guessed it, but fuck it im heeding eric cresseys word and just not doing it. I'll find alternatives. All it's every done is gone up SUPER slowly and fuck up my shoulder.
Wat, no. I know next to nothing about cutting but I know that you increase volume while cutting. If you're not sore the next day than you lost muscle. Drop weights, add volume.
Your capacity to recover in a cut is diminished, meaning you need to take more time between workouts (less volume). And with the glycogen out of your muscles, maintaining intensity is all you have to retain strength (keep the weights x reps the same).
