strength on a cut....

i've only been cutting a few weeks but im already noticing some loss in strength

deadlifts i've had to lower and today technique on squats was slipping as i struggled with the weight. will be lowering the weight for next week

im also finding a lack of motivation come workouts, probably because of this

is this normal on a cut?

and i was thinking about dropping the weights down on my moves, say 10kg squat/deadlift and then work it back up to where i can from there. sound like a good idea?

    Absolutely normal mate


    Is it normal because of the calorie defecit i.e. less carbs than normal?

    personally i wouldnt drop the weight 10 kg for no reason, i'd stick with what i can handle with good fourm

    on a cut your gonna be weaker because you generaly have less carb/cals intake, less water held in the muscles so less energy


    if its drastic strength loss maybe have a look at you diet , or consider more carbs pre work out


    IMO
