Well it's been about two weeks and my weight is still 210 lbs since upping my calories to 3,000 daily. I was losing 2-3lbs a week with 2,000 calories and all the exercise and it just didn't feel right anymore. I don't want to lose any lean tissue. My macros are 200g protein and I try to get 100g fat everyday, the rest carbs, and I'm eating fairly nutritous and my diet is healthy overall. Being 5'10" and over 30% BF should I just eat at maintenance and continue with Allpro beginners routine? I'm going to start adding in HIIT cardio 2-3 days a week also. What kind of changes can I expect following this plan? I want to gain muscle but also want to shed this fat off. Advise please! What should I do now that I know my maintenance?

I would keep cutting and get your bodyfat down first. Then up your calories and slowly gain lean body mass.

I'm worried that if I cut right now I won't gain as much muscle on all pros program. So I was thinking to keep it a maintenance if that makes sense.

if you are really at 30% BF you can lose significant amounts of body fat on a deficit and still gain a moderate amount of muscle.

I'm definitely in that area of BF I've posted my pic before and got guestimates on here. So should I start a caloric deficit? I intened to do HIIT sessions 3 days a week. Would the cardio be enough for the extra fat loss by itself?

Cardio will indeed help with fat loss, and it has other benefits towards overall health. If you are worried about lean body mass loss then aim for a slower cut, 500 calorie deficit aiming for ~1 pound loss per week.
