BendtheBar, when using the Rep Goal System on a diet, how does that work?
I don't advocate general principles like this ^. It doesn't factor in current volume, lifter's history, etc.

Also, pulling back the volume in one big sweeping move is not wise. If the volume is pulled back, or needs to be pulled back, it should be done slowly and based on needs.

The deadlifts system, should I countthe total reps I Do for a given weight to see if I'm losing alot of strength? Basically how would this routine look like on a 1/lb a week fatloss phase?
You count the reps, yes. You still want to aim for improvement, or worst case, holding steady.

Regarding changes for cutting, I wouldn't make any. It's going to take 3-4 weeks to dial in your cutting diet as is, and after that point I would assess how things are going.

When cutting, if anything, I pull the a set on assistance work but keep the big hitting exercises the same when possible.

Listen to your body and make adjustments off specific needs. Let me know if you have any questions.
