I do so forlornly, but for a variety of reasons I'm choosing to leave the novice program for more of a crossfit/GPP/caloric deficit cycle. Naturally, while doing so, I'd like to maintain as much strength as possible, and I'm just wondering what is reasonable to shoot for.
I'm thinking to do 4 workout per week with at least one being strength, the other 3 mixed bag, crossfit inspired.
Assuming I will allow adequate recovery and not drop "too far" below maintenance calories, is it a reasonable expectation that I will be able to do the "big lifts" once per week within 10% of current PR's?
Is that a reasonable/realistic endeavor to strive for?
