    Sounds like you will be starving at that calorie level (if it's accurate). I would expect muscle loss. Consult the macro calculation sticky thread in the nutrition forum.

    Pretty much this ^

    A lot of competing activity will conflict with muscle gain but unless it's to insane levels, you should still be able to do both.

    A simple and fairly foolproof way to kick start this would be:

    1) restrict your diet to only meat (any kind, fattier cuts are not out of the question but just don't eat a pork belly every night),...

    Oly lifts are not a substitute for deltoid work. They are a posterior chain and quad dominant exercise (apart from the spit jerk) when done heavy enough and with proper form.

    No, cardio does not help this process.

    No because they are foundation of your strength and are probably only big because of body fat. People carry fat on their limbs, just because it doesn't wobble doesn't mean it isn't there.

    People don't understand their body composition. So your goal will probably involve gaining more muscle than your realise (and losing fat in separate phases). Not working your legs is a classic newbie...

    Top bodybuilders will tell you that you need to do both. But novices benefit more from working somewhere in the 5-10 rep range initially. Better to do a program that tells you how many reps - running...

    One thing I've done in the past that was quite good was circuits of barbell complexes with lighter weights, e.g.
    - 3 x power clean

    You should be able to make it to 10. If you were doing 20 reps all out, it would be more usual to pause between the last few reps.

    Keep trying and your conditioning will improve. Otherwise, you...

    You will only look "ripped" if you gain about 50lbs of muscle all over - then do a cut phase.

    With your current stats, anything else would be inadvisable.
