I’ve been cutting slowly for 8 weeks/2 months with HR-Extreme. Not going mad, eating around 2400/2500cals daily. I’ve lost a good deal of fat, sitting now at around 10% having started in the region of 13.5-14%. Whilst I’m ecstatic about these changes, I still feel I want to get to the 8-9% mark for that elusive “wow” factor, but I’m unsure about my next steps regarding cutting/maintaining/bulking?
Would it be potentially a bad idea to extend the cut beyond its current 2 months, albeit having to cycle off the HRE? When is too long for a cut? How about running a short-ish maintenance cycle for a few weeks then getting back on with the cut when I can start using HRE again? Or how about a brief bulk to take advantage of my diet-induced insulin sensitivity?
