I calculate you have 35lbs to lose. At 1lb a week
Don't go nuts. Run 3300 for two weeks and reevaluate. Anything much over about 3-4lbs a month will be mostly fat
You have to ramp up your total weekly workload over time. Most of the work you do should be done in the 70-80% of 1RM range. Only a small amount should be done at higher intensities to give you a...
I think it helps to get it clear in your head where strength comes from. MOST of the strength of an individual muscle comes from it's size. There is no such thing as weak bodybuilder muscle and dense...
Maybe drop to to sets of 8x110 - then 9 then 10 etc. There should be part of the progression cycle that drop back to easier levels rather than being on the edge of failure all the time. Hence the 8...
Still smooth but without the protruding belly.
1lb gained is 3500 extra calories - so you can do the math
If you are gaining more than about 3-4lbs a month then most of the extra will be fat. Adjust your calorie level accordingly.

FYI, the current medical advice is to drink a glass of water with each meal and whenever you feel thirsty.
An app seems a little obsessive.
water retention and/or body dysmorphia. Did you actually measure your waist circumference before and after?
You are not intermediate so take your pick of the novice routines. Fierce 5 would be a fine choice - and eat enough to make small but consistent weight gains.
In deadlifting, count any rep where...
Use the same workout you would use for gaining mass
Control calories, reduce your intake until you are losing a steady 1lb a week,
Keep protein intake high - at least 160-200g a day
Carbohydrates are non essential so you could get by eating mostly fat and protein dominant foods (meat, eggs, nuts). Hopefully you'll also find enough vegetables that don't provoke a negative...
Can you be more specific?
I think you still have potential gain from a linear approach (and eating of course)
Not true unless you are using your appetite to guide how much you are eating.
Calories in vs. calories out is what determines weight loss.
If you are counting calories then you can eat whatever...
A lot of female lifters seem to get on well with All Pros simple beginners routine (found in the sticky threads at the top of the forum).
It's also worth reading the sticky threads in the...
Why are you avoiding carbs?
Whey can be consumed at any time and there is a plethora of other dairy products like cheese and yogurt.
You are making it hard for yourself for no good reason. This is unsustainable.
BTW - whey is a superior protein to egg.
You are an eggiterian - for the last 2 weeks?
How about ditching that silly idea and eating a greater variety of wholefoods.
