I’m considering doing Waterbury’s summer program to lose body fat before I head home for the summer season. However, I’ve made huge strength gains in the past 12 months, and would like to lose as little of that as possible. It seems there has been a lot of results from this program, and I was thinking of giving it a shot. As this is my first time really doing a “cutting” program, I’m going to need a lot of help. Currently 205lbs, around 18% bodyfat. I guess my main questions are as follows:
-What would be the best way to maintain strength during this program, especially for the “Big Three” lifts, or would it be enough to just consume enough protein to maintain lean body mass?
-I’m active duty Army, so we do running or bodyweight exercises in the morning…would this have any affect on the program or my diet?
