Dieting, caloric deficit and Big 315217

Out of curiosity, which ones go down first for you guys? For me since I'm born to deadlift and overhead press, even on an aggressive deficit these two always stay constant till a certain threshold. Even on a bulk i can't beat the old MP PR of 80 plus kilos at 76kg bw. Ironic.

The first thing I seem to lose power on is bench, then endurance on squats. After a large deficit that is. . With that said, I hit my 600lb deadlift in a caloric deficit.

Bench for me is most effected by weight.
Deadlifts are said to stay the same for most people due to apparently better leverages as your dieting but loss of strength cancelling each other out (not sure if 100%, but what ive heard from a few vids)

Bench, but that's because my bench is rubbish anyway.

Then Squat.

My bench always drops. Deadlift and squat can stay the same, but if I go full out, they wear me out quickly so I prefer to lower the weight for them.

I usually try to get stronger on a cut. Bench plateau first, then endurance on squat. My deadlift will increase until I've been in a deficit for quite a few weeks.

Bench, squat, then Deadlift in that order.

My bench goes down fast. If I drop cals for like 3 days my bench will suffer.

I suffer on accessory exercises the most, my OHP and bench will then suffer while my squat and deadlift also improves
