So I'm not looking to explode, nor to have a calorie surplus. I just want to use strength training to get my muscles to a certain size while maintaining about 2700 calories each day. (I'm looking for a calorie deficit since I want to lose weight.)

Usually I do 8 exercises of 6-10 reps and 1-2 sets (sometimes 3) per exercise. This usually involves arm, chest, shoulder, and leg exercises, and sometimes the back and abdomen exercises.

Any suggestions that you guys could give?
