Is your watch or whatever your device is used to count your steps also including the recumbent bike in those steps? Or is that in addition to? I always have my clients subtract their steps recorded during cardio, as steps are part of your NEAT not your EAT.

You are making progress on your fat composition, there is no doubt about that. Most of the people here have a long history of bodybuilding and dieting is the single most crucial component to that equation. Most people think its the workout or drugs but it really is the diet. You don't win or lose in the gym, you win or lose in the kitchen. I have often heard the number is 85% for the diet with workouts comprising 15% of the bodybuilding equation and diets are the most often over looked aspect while being the most critical.

Many people here, myself included, focus on diet and nutrition in terms of losing bodyfat while maintain muscle mass. My personal numbers come from a very specific regimen that I picked up years ago from Jeff Willet. Here is what I do:

I take my TDEE and my BMR and I find that number, how many calories does it take to maintain? Then I cut that number by 400-500 calories and I spread that amount out over a minimum of 6 meals. I make my macro ratio what I want it to be and then I stay on that for a few weeks (3-4). After a while I just know how my body feels. I do that for the time mentioned and then I cut it another 200 calories. I do this by incrementally adjusting the deficit across my 6 meals. I do that for another few weeks and then cut a tad more. I do this until I get where I need to be but I never cut it as far as you have.

If you want to maintain muscle then you have to have more calories. You will lost fat the way you are no doubt but it is hard on the body and mind and you will lose a lot more muscle as well. It seems like you want to lose the fat and that is awesome but I personally agree with the other guys here that you are going too hard too fast.

How long have you been training this time? I ask because your workout seems a bit disconnected to me. I think you should maybe focus more on one particular body part. You got legs and chest and bi's and back and all kinds of stuff going on. I generally do several variations to my workout and it goes up and down with the goal I have and sometimes, a full body workout isnt a bad thing but I generally only do that after a comeback so my body will adapt to the stress I am about to hit it with.

I do something like this
M - Bis and Tris
T - Chest
W- Shoulders
T - Legs/ Abs
F - Back
S - Off
S - Rinse and Repeat

Sometimes I change it up and do my push/ pull routine where I might do chest and bis and the next day do back and tris and so on and so forth. It really depends but you need to be taxing the muscle and causing it to breakdown. Ramp the intensity up as well. There is no better cardio than high intensity training imo. I do a lot of supersets when I am really trying to cut and I never rest between sets, I go from bis straight to tris and then right back again. Sometimes I will do 400 reps of each over the course of a workout. I am not much for counting sets anymore I just know how my body feels. Don't just show up at the gym, act like your life depends on it.

How long have you been training
I started training 10/31/2014. I have never missed a session. I taught myself how to do the lifts with the videos in the SL 5x5 app.

my best lifts are BP 380x1, 350x3 – DL 650x1 – SQ 560x1, 500x5 – Front Squat 420x1 - OHP 210x1 – ROW 405x4 –

Ramp the intensity up as well
squatting 250x20 is not intense?

Do you have a log and some physique pics I can see?
