Misconception about cutting and strength losses.
Just something floating around my mind and wanted yalls opinions.
Lets say a guy weighs 270 squats 500, he drops to 240 and squats 505.
People will be like he gained strength in a cut or that he had maintained, this is wrong. If you squat the same ammount you did precut you lost strength.
If I weight 270 and drop 30 pounds while maintaining my strength my squat should increase by 30 pounds. Just a thought and wasn't sure if it had ever been adressed; i'm about to actually start a cut ( been pokin at the idea for months) and wanted to get a better understanding because I'm hoping to be squatting around 650 at 240 and im at 620 at 270.
If I maintain my strength will increase even though im not any stronger.
