Good info about the lifting sets. Thanks.
That isn't such a bad rate of loss, might be able to squeeze out another pound but any more and you're probably losing more mass than you want. I'd shoot for 2 lbs per week at the most. Depends on your diet too, what you are eating is important if you're trying to cut. Go with too big of a deficit and you'll lose energy to workout and mass.
