The past 6 months, I've been on a bulking phase, where I've been able to gain about 9kg (from 78kg to 87kg), a mix of muscle and fat.
The past 6 weeks, I've been doing a benchpress program that increased my 1RM by 10%.
I'm now looking to shift into a cutting phase, and lose some of the fat I've gained, while retaining as much of the muscle mass as possible.
Are there any recommended workout plans for one's cutting phase?
My plan is currently as follows:
3-split (legs, push, pull)
5x5 on main exercise each day (not counting warmup sets)
switch main exercise every time, or in periods (for instance between flat/incline bench on push day, and between squats/deadlift on leg day)
I obviously want to keep as much of my 1RM as possible, but I concede that it might not be achievable to keep all of it.
Thanks in advance!
