    After 6 months of weight training, I'm at the stage where I don't want to get any larger (my goal is the sort of physique Brad Pitt had in fight club). I'm now focusing cardio to cut weight but don't want don’t lose the progress I have made so far with muscle gains.

    I'm thinking of doing shorter routines with either high reps & low weight, or low reps & heavy weight not to tear the muscles.

    Any ideas which would be best or does anyone have other suggestions?

    Thanks.

    I think you need to carry on the weights you are doing, with the same reps but I'm not too sure. You should maybe increase reps but keep the same weight?

    Don't eat enough to gain weight, and you won't get bigger.
