This may be a rather simple answer, but I’m gonna ask it anyway.
I’m in the midst of cutting down to b/t 12-15 percent BF. It’s a loss of about 5 percent.
Along the way, I want to retain as much muscle as possible, obviously.
Is there a way to ensure that that objective is on track?
As my weight goes down, or as I notice my clothes fitting differently, or by what I see in the mirror - whatever the method for guaging my fat loss happens to be - if my lifts stay the same, does that in theory mean I have at least minimized my muscle loss?
I just want to make sure I have a way of ensuring I am on the right track.
