    May I ask a question on this subject, it is said that you do 8-12 reps for hypertrophy and 4-6 reps for strength, so when cutting, is it better to stay in the strength rep range as it seems silly to be lifting in the hypertrophy range when your in a calorie deficit and biulding new muscle is unlikely/impossible.
    I'm asking this as someone who has not yet has to cut.
    Thanks.

    I like legs/push/pull, but I kept my exercises around 3-4 per day.

    I read that, looks good, but what is the nutritional program he mentions at the end? I can't see it.
