if i reduce weight lifting heavier weights, and concentrate more on cardio, would i lose my strength? and if i do lose strength, would i be able to get back to my strength fast?

i'm basically 6"0 and at 210 pounds (use to weigh 250), but want to cut down and get more shredded. I've been doing a lot of heavy lifting, and feel that i've gotten a lot stronger, but i'm not seeing as much definition as i had wanted to see. Any ways or suggestions to help surpass this plateau?

You could do heavy lifting days once or twice a week on monday and tuesday for example, take a rest day on wednesday, then thursday to saturday to hypertrophy training..

You don't lose strength fast, you lose endurance fast.. if you don't train strength at all you'll drop your numbers a bit but can get it back soon

and i don't know why you need to concentrate on cardio because when you're lifting heavy shit your heart rate is high and you're going to lose fat anyway, you just need a good diet

i was dieting for a while, and lost a good amount of weight, but i also played basketball everyday after workingout..but with school and exams in the way, i haven't been doing much cardio after working out..and my diet wasn't as strict as i dont have time to make my food as often.
so if i strictly concentrate on diet, i will see more results?
i guess i'll try the hypertrophy workouts couple days a week and see how thats working for me.

stats:
Bench 1RM: 260
Squats 1RM: 405
Deadlifts 1RM: 365

are my stats decent for my weight class?

Is it improper technique to have your head up & chin against your neck when bench pressing? Everybody says that your head should be down and on the bench, but this one guy says that it keeps blood flowing to your head so you won't see stars after lifting heavy
Just wondering hahah

when you're coming down with the bar your head should lean forward a bit if you're doing proper technique.. Elbows not flared out but pinched together

I also heard that by lifting your butt up and keeping your legs stable helps a lot with the press. Who else does this?

that's the power lifting technique, you do that to put on more plates lol, no one is going to bench 1000 pounds using flat bench technique




and for those of you taking assault over razor,jack3d,etc do you find that you have more energy..?

Ok just gonna throw this out there. After watching a few of Mendelson's vids (I take nothing away from what he's doing) how can you claim to bench 1000lbs when "RAW" you only bench 800. Does that mean that fuckin' super elastic rubber contraption they wear actually lifts 200lbs of weight for them? They can barely fucking move in those "shirts" meaning that when the weight goes down the "shirt" is actually stretching and relieving a shit load of weight.

Also... Why does he go down so slow? Does that not cause the muscles to fatigue (like doing negatives) and therefore make the lift harder?

For those who are wondering, Powerlifting technique on bench is to keep your elbows in and use a fairly narrow grip. In doing this your recruiting your tricep's and using them to help push maximum weight rather than simply training your chest like bodybuilders. Also when you powerlift you bring the bar to your stomach (almost) and that combined with the arched back limits the travel of the lift. Technically as soon as the bar touches your body your allowed to press it back up so having a huge gut (chest) and arching that shit like crazy reduces the travel your pushing the bar.

Berz out.

You know you're a gym rat when at 3pm on christmas eve when you're supposed to be preparing for your family coming over in 2.5 hours you're checking to see if the gym closes at 4pm or 5pm to see if you can get some training in or not.

edit: 5pm!

Actually powerlifting technique asks you to have a wider grip so you use less range of motion, and i think they bring it down slower because you'll drop the bar otherwise.. The power comes from the feet when they push it back up
