This video gives a real-world example of strength loss which results from a period of calorie depletion for the purposes of fat loss. I use my personal experience as a case study and give examples of my big 3 lifts (bench/squat/deadlift) during my bulks and subsequent cuts during the summers prior to some of the men’s physique/bodybuilding shows that did. During this time I would routinely lose upwards of 30+ lbs of body weight and my strength would decline and this video gives specific examples of my strength before and after. In addition, we also focus on WHY this happens (muscle loss, carb depletion, testosterone decline) and a few things you can do to prevent this such as high protein diets, carb preservation, lower volume, carb cycling, and most importantly: TAKE IT SLOW!
