Specifically weight training?
If recomping is such a difficult, almost mythological thing to achieve, why do people need to lift when cutting? They won't be able to gain muscle mass anyway right? So is the lifting necessary only insofar as it decreases the rate in which muscle is lost?
If that is the case, people would be on endless cutting and bulking cycles to look basically the same, with marginal net gains in muscle.
Isn't it easier to simply lift without cutting or bulking? That way the initial increase in metabolism will assist in fat loss and the progressive gain in muscle mass will further increase metabolism leading to even more fat loss without the need of a diet. This way one gains muscle mass and loses fat without cutting or bulking. In other words, a non-dietary recomp.
Of course, I am talking about normal people, not Ronnie Coleman, as I'm sure he needs more food and injections *wink* than most racehorses.
Am I missing something???
