    All else being equal, a larger muscle is stronger. So hypertrophy produces strength.

    Normally I would say 2650 for TDEE.

    If you really accurately measured 3k for a sustained period and your weight stayed about the same then then that's your number.

    Eat at maintenance and see if you can still make steady progress. You can experiment with just above or just below. In practice, it's hard to stay at exactly maintenence anyway. Try pushing...

    You are probably already too close to your max weight for those reps/sets - so leaving no room to ramp the weight up. This is the kind of implicit assumptions that some programs will make - but if...

    Novices - 1 main compound and maybe 1 isolation. Look at the structure of routines like Fierce 5. Maybe they look like they don't contain enough but they were written that way for good reasons.
