workout at the end of cutter?
How do you change your routine as you get more worn down from cutting?
I am starting to notice my pressing strenght is suffering. Leg, back and deadlift strenght is still climbing for me but my pressing strenght has stagnated.
Toying slightely with the idea of cutting down to only 2 workouts a week and doing them both as full body workouts. Also a bit curious to include the 10*3 method for a while(http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=547470).
Hang clean and press
I would use the 10*3 in deadlift, bench and hang clean and press. Rest of exercises hit fashion. 1 set with 10-12 reps to failure. Leg exercises slightely higher reps(12-20).
What do you guys think of this. Could it be a viable workout while cutting? Im also gonna use slin pwo to increase recovery. One of the workouts will be on my cheat day so the slin wont cut into cutting days more then once a week.

I usually am able to lift the same amount of weight and do all of the same exercises as I normally do, but I may cut down the # of sets.

is it a radical cut of sets or just one set less here and there?

Usually just cut out one set from each exercise, yeah.

do you notice that you have a harder time keeping strenght in some muscle while its easy with others? If you do notice that how do you adjust?

johan ur gonna train just 2 days a week??

yeah thinking about it. Im trying to find the sweet spot betwen volume and optimal recovery. 3 days a week makes me grow better then 4 days a week so I got to try if 2 days a week makes me grow even more. But I will still always work through my body twice a week no matter how many workouts I split it into so I still hit each bodypart with greater frequensy then most.

oh i see
that might cause over training on somebody parts
cause from all the strain of lifting so much in one day

yeah I always need to be carefull with chest and shoulders since I overtrain them extremely easily. But back and legs I seem to be able to hit as hard as often as I want without overtraining them. Wierd how the body works
