The First Few Wks After Cutting Feel Sweet

It’s so nice to see growth again after a long cutting phase… New PR in all three main lifts:

Squat 320 x 2 (+20 lbs.)
Bench 258 x 1 (+8 lbs.)
Deadlift 420 x 1 (+15 lbs)

wait so you made PR’s while cutting?

Nah. Held steady though except for deadlift. DL dropped from 405x3 to 405x1 while I cut 10 pounds over 8 weeks. The PRs were after one full week of regular workouts, i.e. set in the second week.
