Good article. Your explanation(simplified of course) of why lbm is lost on high rep workouts is:

When you remove the high tension stimulus, you remove the signal to build (or in the case of dieting, maintain) muscle mass. What do you think happens next? Right, muscles get smaller.

Is this also the reason why circuit training w/weights can lead to lbm? Or is there something else at play there?

Excellent article. I've tried (and failed) to convince the folks on JP Fitness that the fat loss routines they're using from New Rules of Lifting are no good for muscle preservation as I personally found out the hard way.

"along with skills training"

what does this mean. if its a good amount of physical work, then it will cut into recovery. EVERYTHING has to be taken into account, not just gym time.

Boxing, but during the harder days where I spar, I may cut down on intensity of the conditioning days. Also, I have 8 hours of sedentary sitting in between skills training and conditioning
