Good thread James, however I do not think it will progress very far. [/quote]
Agreed Derek. Because other than Matty and HARA, most are not at a level to give any advice and it shows so far. In fact, that goes for the majority of threads here but especially this one. If youre training is or hasnt been in the past, geared towards strength goals(Pl, Strongman, Weightlifting) then you have no need to comment. Its something that takes time and experience to grasp.[/quote]
Why do you have no need to comment if your training has not been geared towards strongmen or powerlifting? I thought this was about staying strong or getting stronger while cutting some BF? No offense, but I would put my numbers against quite a few here and I don’t train for strongman or powerlifting and I retain most if not all of my strength while some lifts go up while dropping BF.
Guess I will keep my advice to myself then, since I don’t train for strongman competitions.[/quote]
Well sonofabitch. First off I could of made my point alittle better but it still stands. First of when I say most, I meant the ones who already posted. Not everyone on this damn site. And congrats on your numbers and accomplishments. But sit down and think about what I wrote and if it applies to you. ATypical has different goals than alot of the guys posting in BSF. There are done things he’s willing to sacrifice for strength that others here wouldn’t (definition,size,etc) because he is a powerlifter.
Since his primary goal is strength, he has to approach cutting a different way. Since he is older and at a different level, I don’t think everyone here has a valid answer. Now I know some may be trying to help but they need to realize when to listen/read and when to give advice. Does that make sense to you?[/quote]
I’m guessing I would be one of those poster and as I said its from knowing some good plers and following what they do
And as to cutting differently I disagree any cut if some in a smart matter will allow you to lose bf and maintain or gain strength. [/quote]
You’re right, you were one of the ones I was referring to but just know it wasn’t meant as a ridicule or disrespect. Just different goals. And for the most part yes, the diet side is quite similar. There might be some differences but overall the same. Obviously training may change with changed goals and that’s an area he may need advice from that others may not have the knowledge to give him
