How would you define a mini-cut? If someone asked you what the purpose of a mini-cut was, what would you say?
In today’s episode, Eric, Andrea and Alberto answer these questions, and more. The coaches cover pretty much anything you could ever want to know about mini-cuts: Should they be slow or aggressive? What is an appropriate length? How often should you do one? Are they a requirement?
To summarize the stance of 3DMJ on the subject, a statement from Eric Helms:
“A mini-cut should be seen as a part of your bulk.”
