Don't do too much. Any progress is good progress while dieting.
I disagree a bit. YMMV and everyone is probably a little different on what works, but hypertrophy plus light cardio (e.g., walking, above) tend to work well for me together when done together. Obviously, strength gains are slow coming, but that's to be expected. I do agree that heavy volume is not the way to go.
