    Im am about 10 weeks out from my first show. Im cutting at the moment and am following a calorie cycle plan that my buddy is using. We are competing in the same show but he is 25 and I am 17. So basically what I'm doing is High, Moderate, Low calorie days as follows

    High- 2375 kcal
    Mod- 2075 kcal
    Low- 1775 kcal

    Monday- Chest (Cardio AM) High - 2375 kcal
    Tuesday- Back (Cardio AM) High - 2375 kcal
    Wednesday- Cardio PM - Low - 1775 kcal
    Thursday- Shoulders/Arms (Cardio AM) Moderate - 2075 kcal
    Friday- Legs (Cardio AM) High - 2375 kcal
    Saturday- Cardio PM - Low - 1775 kcal
    Sunday- Rest - Low - 1775 kcal

    At the end of the week it equals the same calorie deficit as if I would follow the same amount of calories everyday for that week.

    So my questions are as follow:

    Is this a good approach to the cutting diet?
    Is it true it will preserve more muscle mass?
    Will it keep my body guessing and therefor burn more body fat?

    Thanks to all, your help and feedback will be greatly appreciated!

    So here is an update of my exact plan:

    High- 2375
    Mod- 2075
    Low- 1775

    Monday- Chest (Cardio AM) High - 2375
    Tuesday- Back (Cardio AM) High - 2375
    Wednesday- Cardio PM - Low - 1775
    Thursday- Shoulders/Arms (Cardio AM) Moderate - 2075
    Friday- Legs (Cardio AM) High - 2375
    Saturday- Cardio PM - Low - 1775
    Sunday- Rest - Low - 1775

    High = 2375 kcal
    Pro = 2 * 180 = 360g = 1440 kcal
    Fat = .25 * 180 = 45g = 405 kcal
    Carb = 530 kcal = 135 kcal

    Mod = 2075 kcal
    Pro = 2 * 180 = 360g = 1440 kcal
    Fat = .25 * 180 = 45g = 405 kcal
    Carb = 230 kcal = 57g

    Low = 1775 kcal
    Pro = 1.8 * 180 = 324g = 1296 kcal
    Fat = .25 * 180 = 45g = 405 kcal
    Carb = 74 kcal = 18.5g
