    Great stuff Alain! I am finishing up a cut this week for a trip to Cabo on Monday. I have followed all your advice and thankfully, I did not lose any muscle. In fact, some of my lifts, like the bench press and squats, actually got stronger. Thank you!

    Damn, very helpful Alain. I found I was makin 2 of these mistakes on my first cut. And I did end up losing a lot of strength n mass.
    But during this cut, i know imma get really ripped and keep my strength as I avoid this mistakes.
