My strength did go in the shitter eventually but I was perhaps too aggressive at certain times in the cut though it was fairly slow. Perhaps you could look at waist size and body fat % as much as the scale and consider what your maximum allowed limits are for these.
If it's just a case of junk food causing much of the damage, maybe just cutting it could keep you at least where you are if not drop a couple of kilos. From my experience, squat and bench were the first to go south while deadlift and overhead press stayed reasonably strong until near the end. Anyways, just spinning my wheels
Thanks Kuyt. Ye, don't think I'm quite ready to do a dedicated cut right now. I keep a check on caliper measurements and waist but for me it all comes down to the mirror along with strength.
Pretty much going with your second statement. Cutting the crap and reverting to my pre-re-injury plan of milk and dextrose backloading to keep some bloat. I'll see how I feel in a couple weeks. Now that I'm training a lot again and riding everywhere I wouldn't be surprised to see a little loss initially.

Nice and easy. Wanted to clean some things up off the floor with sumo, reps were good today and the pauses helped with finding the right position.
Hopefully training some strongman events tomorrow, not going to push anything though.
