Stu recently said that lifting should always be done with the intent of building muscle. I agree. Whatever built the muscle will help you keep it while dieting off the fat. So, since you’re familiar with it, I suggest you stick to 531, pick a reasonable template (that means no boring but big), and add conditioning. The rest of the work will be done in the kitchen.[/quote]
I’ve found when cutting that strength training should be kept to the minimum you can do to maintain/build strength and that your big gains will come in the kitchen.[/quote]
I’m not trying to put out conflicting advice but it doesn’t matter what kind of training you do as long as it’s adequate and your diet is built around it. BBB is fine, but he might be eating more daily I prefer to add volume to cutting calories if I have the time to sustain it.[/quote]
I’ve found the opposite approach has worked well for me.
Different strokes though.
