    Bryce and Joe,

    I’ve been on a cut for some time, down from 240 to 204 this morning. I am by far the leanest I have personally ever been. At this point, my strength is starting to decline in the gym. I feel like my arms look stringy and my chest looks flat.

    At what point should I be concerned with losing muscle tissue? Is this a normal part of reaching new body fat levels?

    Is there something I need to do to minimize losing tissue – such as a diet break or higher calorie days etc.

    To note – I am on testosterone slightly above TRT dose (I use TRT medically)

    Also – I am not contest lean. I was always overweight as a kid so this level of body fat, to me, is LEAN.

    Lower, Pull, Push
    A and B rotations
    2 days on, 1 day off

    10k steps per day
    30 min bike @ 130bpm heart rate 3 times per week

    Thank you,
