I think this is wrong, but I was wondering if if I'm still making gains in the gym during a cut if that means I'm not losing lean mass. The reason I think I could still be losing lean mass is because 1) I'm not taking T and 2) strength is not just a hypertrophic issue but has a neuromuscular/axonal potentiation and fiber recruitment side to it. So I could be maximizing the latter stuff while slowly loosing mass.
In the end it doesn't really matter, since what matters most to me is my strength. I was just curious if strength gains were a sign of not loosing muscle in a cut.
