Cutting fat whilst powerlifting

#1 Postby vegan_rossco » Wed Jan 29, 2014 1:38 pm

Just curious really if anyone has had any experience with this, I managed to keep gaining strength whilst cutting body fat last summer and plan on doing so again as of next month.
Anyone got tips? Or just have their own way of doing this? :zunge:

Most important thing for me (other than choosing the right diet) was to not stop training ever.
If you get sick, either stop dieting or fight through it. Otherwise you will lose A LOT of strength.

I always use keto diets of about 4-8 weeks. I had about 6 of those in the last 2 years. I think about twice I got sick and didn't train.
As a result, during 4-6 weeks in early 2012 I went down from 155/95/205 (in kilos) to 130/80/170 or so. At other times with similar fat loss I even got stronger because I trained just the same (or even harder and more frequently).

So even more than usual, consistency is key.
