    Routine while cutting (need advice)

    Training for football this august. Going from lineman to linebacker. While eating on a surplus, I was on DT with some added power lifting movements and have made some nice gains. Recently I have began "cutting" to lose excess fat in prep for linebacker. I was wondering if their are any recommended routines I can try following in order to maintain my strength AND size.

    Bench: 350
    Squat: 475
    Dead: 500

    Why not stay on the same routine you were on if you were making nice gains?

    Thats still an option. DT is an extremely taxing program (Even when i was bulking) so i thought their was the possibility that i would just be running myself down and getting weaker.

    Yea, I really wouldn't do a program like DT while in a Calorie deficit. You'd have to lower the volume or something.

    Generally, if you read a piece of advice on the internet, assume it's wrong until proven otherwise. This applies especially to "conventional wisdom". -Belial

    I was thinking of not doing those and putting in place some cone work/speed intervals. Maybe even add a few more lifts to each day. If you have any recommendations beyond that Alex I would love to hear them, I know your experienced with balancing conditioning/weightlifting with your marathon stuff. I have a lot of work to do for these try-outs, especially from a cardio point of view.
