If you’re dieting or eating below maintenance, don’t train your muscles to failure. Stimulate the muscles but don’t take them to failure and break them down.
You don’t want to tear your muscles up when you’re not eating enough calories to repair them.
Make this simple change to your training during your next cut and you may well find you hold onto more muscle mass at the end of your cut. Why?
Because you didn’t spend the last 6-12 weeks breaking your muscles down and not eating enough to repair them.
