    There is an old pervasive line of thought that when you cut it's better to use lighter weight and higher reps. I don't blame him for asking. All of my most successful cuts were done while prepping for a PL meet.



    Edit: to clarify and respond somewhat to zilla's comment about not using strength programs rather than muscle building programs - the methods I used for PL involved ridiculous volumes that did induce muscle growth. So I do agree with him. In fact with clients I would help cut down I always kept their focus on building muscle not losing fat. That especially helps your more... um... neurotic clients.
