    Questions regarding cut

    Okay I am in no way ready to start a cut (I actually plan to hopefully start one by october or november) but I was wondering a few things:

    How does one actually prevent massive muscle or strenght loss while at the same time reducing fat percentages?

    How different should my workout be during cutting in comparison to bulking?

    Finally, would nitor/thermocin help out much specially regarding the first question

    Thanks in advance! and so far you guys have done a great job answering all my newbie questions thanks for that too!

    I think I can answer the first question. Keep your protein intake high, but reduce the overall amount of calories and fat you intake.

    Workouts should be short and intense. Get in the gym, lift your ass off for 30-45 minutes with very heavy weights, then go home.

    Nitor or thermo will help you with energy levels on a cut. They will not directly make you lose fat faster, though indirectly they can by making it easier for you to sustain a caloric deficit.

    No, fat intake doesn't matter as long as you're under your calorie maintenance. It's carbs that you should be limiting.

    It's all good, it's actually a pretty common misconception.
