Would intermittent fasting be the way to go for this if I kept my protein high?
And, I have kettlebells should I add swings and snatches to my workout as the cardio and still dead lift and press?

Question 2, no one has ever answered this when posed...

Due to the Chemical crap storm Uncle same shot me full of in the early 90's with the Corps, I am not dependent on Test Therapy for life as my production shut down when I was about 35 now 43.
My numbers hover around 900 or very high 800's .

Many protocols of lifts call for you to lift in a certain way to elicit a hormonal response, IE higher T levels HGH etc..

If you are already taking an external source of Test (Cypionate) how does this affect the way you should work out, does it still hold the same?

Thank you for your time and attention brother.

Intermittent fasting worked great for me. I lose over 50 pounds in 2 months. Even if you try it and lose a little strength and muscle, it should level out after the cutting is over.

I drink 3-4 protein shakes during the day, then about 2k calories at night. This seems to work great for me with regards to muscle retention.

Q2...Progression is the prime mover for either scenario. Once you have built up a substantial amount of muscle you can start to incorporate some advanced training techniques as a method of periodizing intensity (heavy weight).

Natties who train to spike test are really focused on the wrong thing.
