Is this program actual for natural training?
As far as I'm doing it I think it's a very good compromise between enough volume and decent strengh progress to allow progressive overload.
Anyway I just read again the Q&A from lyle regarding GBR for cutting :
4.1 I want to cut on this routine. How to?

What you really don't ever want to do is lower the weight on the bar. That's a fantastic way to
as mentioned endlessly, you can maintain most biomotor capacities with a 2/3rds reduction in
volume and frequency but ONLY if you maintain intensity.
Does it mean that for cutting you have to forget the "cycling part" (deloading every 6-8 week) and just keep working with maxes for every exercises even after the 8 weeks ?
