couple of buddies (well into collegiate studies and years at universities for kinesiology and such) told me that if I ate enough (more than enough) protein, STRENGTH could be gained.
A side note, obviously I do not expect to put on "muscle mass" while cutting.
Also, I'm used to being weak, I've been pretty weak regardless of how much I ate. I yo yo almost everyday, but I guess I just don't see a point in being a fat ass, and then being a STRONGER fat ass.
Again, if there's some error in my thinking, point it out, just giving my train of though.
I ALSO know that it is easier to lose weight when you move more, and a "re-comp" and getting your strength up THEN cutting is a good idea.
But, I've been "getting my strength up" for a year solid. I started losing my strength on bench from back squats (BB irritated elbows, just thought it was a natural thing until about a week ago) and BB benchpress didn't help the problem. haha.
I am sort of thinking of doing "SS" over again, except this time with DB benchpress and either front squat or leg press, just to get the lifts I care about up and strong along with my back.
Help on this would be wonderful as well.
