    Hi guys..

    Been cutting a while and I’m starting to notice that I’m starting to follow out of the rep ranges for my working sets. I know maintaining intensity is key for muscle retention but would you suggest lowering weight slightly and working back to failure within those target rep ranges.

    Thanks guys

    Thanks guys…

    Not competing. Just lifestyle but have a coach that manages my diet…it’s just at point where I’ve lost about 12 pounds and the food is lower and cardio is around 65 min a day so just tired..

    From what I saw in the video…I would first reduce the volume to two working sets each till failure..aka baseline..(I had added a third set for some priority stuff prior to cutting) ..but I’m okay hitting failure twice in the working sets as long as in the desired ranges?

    As time goes on..Would I just reduce load slightly and go more rir 1-2 within the rep that I was working within?

    I appreciate both your feedback..just clarifying I understood the video application correctly

    Thank you both so much
