Doing Dave Palumbo's cutting diet.
Slowly saw increases in weight and reps before the diet.
I have been doing the diet for about 4 weeks and I saw my strength go down. Only being able to lift 8,9 or 10 reps instead of the 12 I was doing.
Fast forward to today. I basically came off of the diet and have been eating carbs and whatnot again for the last week. Maintaining weight and not being stupid. I have noticed that my reps are back to where they were and I getting the full sets done.
Is this a normal thing?
