I am sure this is basic stuff, i tried to search the forum but wasn’t satisfied with what came up.
Currently bulking and doing everything for 5 sets of around 8-12 reps.
When i start my cut what is optimal to maintain strength and mass?
Thinking out loud 8-12 rep range for 5 sets is for hypertrophy which will not happen on a deficit so would be pointless, so should i cut the reps and sets and go more towards a 3 sets of 5 reps kind of program? This is more powerlifting and i was wondering what bodybuilders do in a cut, because i cant imagine they turn into powerlifters.
Please point out the flaws in my thinking and or advice on reps/sets, thanks
