    I've not read anything that suggests deloading during a cut is a bad idea - though I'm far from an expert. Deload according to the demands of the program you're on. If a deload isnt scheduled then...

    You could do either. Personally, I’d bump to maintenance - it’s what I do. Physically and psychologically you could find that it helps in terms of recovery and having a diet break every few weeks may...

    25 lbs in 4 months is too much, too quickly. If you're not bothered by your level of body fat you don't necessarily need to cut. But you need to slow the weight gain down. Focus on making solid...

    My 2 cents, purely based on my own experience and observations.

    At your age and height, you can reasonably assume that you have somewhere in the region of 30-40lbs of muscle gain available to you...

    Completely depriving yourself of anything you can enjoy sensibly, rarely works well and there's rarely - if ever - a need for it.

    If you're hitting your protein minimums, spread reasonably throughout the day, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I'd recommend getting in some protein either before you work out or within ~1hr of finishing your workout. Beyond that, it's really down to preference and whatever helps you perform in the gym.

    I've had great results cutting at ~800 cals 5 days per week, with 2 days at maintenance. Might be worth giving it a try.

    At this point you should be limiting weight loss to 1lb per week and more importantly, focusing on strength gains on a reputable program

    If I were you, given your body fat levels and relatively little training experience, I'd get on a program like fierce 5, eat at a small deficit (~300cals) and see if you can maintain steady increases...

    11kg in 4 months? That sounds too fast to me. Especially at 41 years of age. I think you'd be better to slow right down to 1-2lbs per month, if you want to minimise fat gains.
