What you can try is to do 2 sessions of sprints each week. Also, eat more protein and fewer carbs and fats and reduce your calories just a little bit. Not drastically because you still want to get stronger.

There's a bulge in the back along my hamstrings. You can really see it when I walk up the stairs or something like that. Everything that got bigger is shaped better so I'm not unhappy.
