I'm 5ft 6, and 70kgs atm. That might explain the low cals but I could probably still afford to eat more I'll definitely try raise them back up slowly; last time maintenance was 2500k give or take a couple hundred. I eat carbs around my workouts so I haven't felt very weak and have seen improvements in my main lifts, doing hiit on back day and leg day as well as fasted steady state for an hour every morning.
Sounds good. I think you should be able to do almost a whole cut in the 2300-2000 range, depending on your starting bodyfat level. Last weeks you might have to drop to 1800-1900 but lower than that seems unnecessary imo. Personally, I would then rather add light activity such as long walks.
