Youre already exhausting your body and muscles. If yopure lifting it better be REALLY low weight because the cutting alone is exhausting, youre not gonna heal the most spectacularly cut night.

Doing low weight High reps should help your fat burn off quicker too. If you constantly keep your heart rate up, your metabolism will constantly be burning more.
