Hello everyone, I'm currently deciding if I should cut after my meet next month.
I have gone from 108 (238 lbs) to 118 kg (260 lbs)
my lifts have gone from 185/135/250 to 200/145/265
or from 407/297/551 to 440/319/584.
I'm 18 and 5"11' or 6"0' and am training specifically for powerlifting
Measurements from the start of this bulk to now
Waist from 100 cm to 106 cm so from just under 40" to about 42"
Arms from 17" to 18"
Legs from 29" to 31".
My bodyfat is around 23-25%. I was thinking of cutting from around may and I would like to reach around 238 lbs. so I can cut to 231 lbs. for meets. I'm not sure how I should go about doing this as I have never cut before. I would like to maintain strength and am fine with cutting for several months, as I need to drop almost 30 lbs.
My questions are; How long would this take if I would like to maintain as much strength as possible? Can I expect to not lose a ton of strength since my BF is so high?
