I did SS for around 5 months and have had pretty good success, although my BF% had gone up to 20% and I probably need to do a cut before I continue, or reboot SS.
Squat 50kg -> 85kg Bench 50kg -> 75kg Press 30kg -> 45kg Deadlift 50kg -> 110kg BW 70kg -> 80kg
Towards the end of the program, I had injuries, lack of motivation, and stopped making gains in both body-weight and strength, so decided it was time for a change.
A lot of people (the SS crowd) suggest staying on SS while on a cut. I can't see this working without since I struggled even when trying to eat a calorie surplus....
I was going to start running 2x week and 1x heavy weights since this seems to be the middle ground. But that doesn't seem very common at all.
Is there an SS equivalently routine while cutting? Or any other really popular routines? Should I be lowering weights and increasing exercises, reps and sets??
Should I be looking at Madcow or Texas method since they tend to be high volume less increases?
