    Acceptable gains for 3 months? Still skinnyfat? *pics*

    Hey guys and goyles ive been following starting strength religiously for the past ~4 months and ive made some strength gains. My deadlift is just shy of 315 now and my bench is slowly creeping up too. Squats have been trouble due to mobility issues but im able to get 5x5 of my bodyweight 80kgs so its progress nonetheless. My question is what should i do from this point on? Should i go on a minicut to get rid of these ugly love handles or should i keep going as i am already and cut for summer in december? Im 5ft10 and weigh 80kgs rn for reference.

    Try to limit your cut to losing 1/2 pound a week, that should keep your strength where you want it, to get a more aesthetic look you will need to lose some weight.

    Maybe. It's normal to lose some strength while cutting due to less glycogen. It will come back when the cut is over.

    You likely wouldn't. Common beginner trap is to overanalyse everything. I've been on a cut and IF, going in the gym on an empty stomach and I haven't lost any strength in the last 3 months cutting.
