Cutting Stack Overkill?
Hello all. I've been trying to get my BF% down the last 6 weeks since I completed a bulking stack of PMAG and MDROL. So far I dropped from about 15% down to 13% and it seems I can't seem to make anymore progress without losing the muscle mass I gained from the bulking stack. I feel too weak to train if I drop my calorie intake any further.
I was thinking of running the triple crown stack (Titanium, Erase, and Alpha T-2) along with Lean xtreme. Would these 4 be overkill for cutting? My goal is to get down to about 10% BF and have a visible 6 pack. So far, I've only got the top 4 but a tire of fat around my lower waist as well.
I'm eating roughly 2,000-2,200 kcal/day during training days, Mon-Fri.
I do 40 min. HIIT in the morning on an empty stomach, then heavy weight training 5:00 PM.
On the weekends I eat about 2,500-2,800 kcal most of the additional cals come from CHO.
Any suggestions on my stack or my diet? I've been told I should drop to about 1,800 kcal a day but when I did that for a few days I was just dragging at the gym come evening weight training session.
NOW liquid multi vits.

cutting so soon after a cycle = bad idea
You need to maintain that mass for at least a couple months so your body can adjust and recover, then slowly transcend into a cut.

Oh man, I had no idea, thanks for that info! It was about 2 weeks after my PCT finished when I started cutting down my cal. intake. Is it too late to bump my cal. intake back up to maintenance? I've been cutting for almost 6 weeks now.

Yea I would bump the calories back up, bulk or maintain for another 2 months - gain back the muscle you might of lost during cutting - then slowly start going into a cutting phase.

Thanks again, but as far as the cutting stack goes, will those 4 supps be overkill when I decide to jump back into a cutting stack?

I would drop the lean xtreme as Erase already has cortisol properties. You should see good results with just the crown stack.

Trying to get my body fat down to get rid of this spare tire around my waste while maintaining as much of the little muscle mass I currently have.
