Am I building strength/muscle ?

I eat about 1500 Cals a day and I consume about 100g of protein. My aim is fat loss but I want to build muscle when I get to my gw. Lately I’ve been raising my weights a lot, everything feels so light. I leg pressed 170 today easily, I can squat 100 now. I’ve also been doing a lot of arm work, and I feel like my arms feel harder/look my defined in certain angles or when I flex. My calves and legs feel harder too. What is going on ? I try to push myself/achieve hypertropy.

    What do you mean “What is going on?”You’re strength training and lifting more weight. Isn’t that what you expected to happen?

    Yes but I wasn’t expecting gains on such a big deficit
