Training program for morbidly obese man in caloric deficit? (I'm a novice)
I am 18 years old and 367 pounds. When I began my journey 5 months ago I was 409 pounds. I did not begin weight training until 3 months ago. I've been doing a Push Pull split that I'm pretty sure is sub optimal. I do not train legs because I do not enjoy it and I also feel they are already too large, especially my calves, which are longer and thicker than most men's upper arm, as I've been obese all my life.
It is good to note that I am not diabetic or even pre-diabetic and my blood pressure was in the normal range. But unfortunately my good cholesterol was low.
I am close to pre-diabetes though with a blood glucose level of 95. Pre-diabetes is 99 on the range.
I do have low testosterone and will be seeking treatment in the next month.

Push day on Sunday looked like this:
BB Incline Press 190 3x10
BB Overhead Press 95 3x10
Hammer Strength Isometric Press 180 3x10
Hammer Strength Overhead Press 180 3x10

Machine Pec Deck 265 3x10

I am not well educated on training and am operating on knowledge learned from the internet.
I have very bad triceps and chest DOMS, but little in my shoulders.
I have no problem with getting down and dirty with exercises and can perform all safely with proper form. Mobility and flexibility are quite good for a man of my size.
I supplement my weight training with walking 2 miles 4-5 days a week. I don't enjoy running or jogging because it is humiliating and I have had people laugh at me for doing it.
Hypertrophy is above all else the primary goal.
