    Maintaining weight lifted

    Would I be right in saying that when in a deficit if you aren’t able to increase the weight lifted each week while losing weight, you should at least be trying your hardest to maintain the weight your lifting??

    Pretty much, but don't let form degenerate just to hit the same weight with lower quality and higher chance of injury.

    Okay thanks my form seems to be fine it’s just the weight isn’t going up on some lifts. I just wanted to ask wether trying to even maintain the weight lifted is sufficient enough on a cut rather than dropping weight lifted. I seem to be able to maintain the form and weight on all lifts ... just struggling to increase the weight

    I cheat a little like this when cutting and its worked decently well. Instead of dropping weight, drop volume, or increase rests. I would do say 3x5 at 200lbs for a lift then I would do 2x3 at 200 instead. That is I think 1800lbs less volume which then I would make up at something easy like 100 lbs so 3x6.

    I try not to cut a long time so this seems to be a good band aid for short cuts when you start losing strength knowing you going right back to maintain or bulk.

    Just try your absolute best. If your in a caloric deficit chances are your not going to be able to increase weight but having that mind state is already going to have a negative impact on your workout. Listen to how your body feels go out there and rip s!#t up.

    Lift an appropriate amount of weight. Start with a weight you can lift comfortably 12 to 15 times.
    Use proper form. Learn to do each exercise correctly.
    Breathe.
    Seek balance.
    Incorporate weight training into a fitness routine at least two times a week.
    Rest.
