    I would look into a 3 day full body routine. Instead of M/W/F, do M/W/Th. And if you want to go Tuesday you can do cardio or other small stuff.

    Keep in mind when you get the ball rolling, at some point the number on the scale will stop moving and may even increase. The water/fluid retention and muscle gains will offset the fat loss, so it's...

    You need to:

    -Build muscle
    -Lose fat

    You can do both reasonably as a beginner for a short time. Put yourself in a daily 500-1000kcal deficit so you are losing 1-2lbs per week. Choose a 3x a...

    There's no problem switching RDL to conventional deadlift - and you wouldn't need to add or change anything else.

    If you want to get from A to B as quickly as possible, then just run a proven routine. I wouldn't look into "intermediate" routines just yet.

    You're likely not seeing the progress you want because you keep adding all this other stuff. If you are doing all that on top of strength training, then generally you want to take a periodized...

    Can "overtraining" happen? Yes. But more often than not it's people under recovering from lack of sleep / nutrition.

    The smallest increment is 5, so if you use KG the sheet will give you back to back weeks with the same weight. I guess you can just keep that in mind and add 2.5kg when it happens.

    Yes. If anything, you would add a bit more volume but the linear progression structure can be fine for intermediates.
