Cutting

This question is for the guys who cut dramatically for competitions (mostly because they have experience in prolonged deficits). My question is how many calories do you drop below your TDEE and how long do you sustain it for? Any metabolic issues?

Question Looking To Build Up Grip Strength -- Suggestions?

After pulling something in my left wrist last week and now pulled something in my right forearm, I now realize that my grip strength is the issue.

Question Split Critique

I was pushing myself a bit hard, definitely not as resilient as I was in my younger days. I know rest days are recommended, but I go in the morning and my day just feels off if I don't go do something at the gym. Works better than coffee in waking me up and getting me going. Old Split: Sun:...
