Running 2-3 days a week trying to get my cardio up. Burning a lot of calories and can see that in my body.


I wouldn't expect your lifts to progress tremendously while burning a lot of calories.
From what I gather from the numbers you posted, your lifts are strong. Maybe trying to maintain that while getting your cardio up would be a more realistic goal.
Even if they drop off a bit, I wouldn't sweat it if it were me.
