I need help picking a cutting program, but before anyone throws anything out I’ll give some background info.
I tried my first bulk last year with some poor planning and a 6 day per week PPL program. I ran it from July basically through November with some decent size gains and strength gains, but I ran into issues with injuries due to the volume of it. So I took the month of December off to heal up and started lifting again in January. I maxed to start and had a 230 bench, 350 squat, and 405 deadlift. I bought the book bigger leaner stronger by mike Matthews and gave it a go for a month while cleaning up my diet, but honestly got bored. I understand the 3-4 minutes rest between the main lift but doing that for the accessory stuff makes me feel like I’m not working hard. I enjoy hard workouts and though I feel my strength is slowly progressing I just do not feel that I am enjoying my training. My goal was to eat at maintenance calories for a month while training and adding some sprint work and then begin to cut. So now I am stuck.
What would be a good program for me to run while trying to cut for the first time?
