It’s important to have a finish line when going into a ‘cut’ or ‘fat loss phase.’ You can’t always be in a deficit. There are so many different options for progressing exercises at home as long as you focus on the right things (i.e., unilateral work, effective reps, mind-muscle connection, RPE/RIR, eccentrics, etc.) You must be SUPER clear on your ‘why’ and have someone (a coach) to help you. Even coaches need coaches. Periodizing your nutrition to include refeeds and diet breaks is a must to help prevent some of the negative effects that occur with dieting and metabolic adaptation. What you give power to, has power over you. Everything we see is perspective. Show Notes:
