Split is a 4 split instead of 3.
Rep's are kept between 8-12 sets are kept from 2-3 sets.
Chest/bi'sB bench press,DB flys,incline Bicep curls,Wide hand placement push up(help your core aswell)
Legs/abs:Squats(or legpress),Lunges,Calf raises(standing or sitting),Captins chair leg raises.
Back/tri's: db rows,Dips,Lat pull downs,pull ups or chin ups
Shoulders:db side raises,Shrugs,DB shoulder press and rear delt flys.
Throw in your choice of cardio on 1 or 2 if your brave of those off days.Once at desired bodyfat....this is important!EAT AT MAINTAIN CALORIES FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS TO STABILIZE WEIGHT!Don't go straight into bulking.You will be cut in no time!Hope I helped and good luck!
EDIT:Just noticed my # of post and rep is the same.Rep me to fix that
My disclaimer:I would like to address the absence of deadlifts and olympic bars,more tricep work,much bicep work and no front delt work.Deadlifts can be dangerous even in a calorie surplus and should be avoided while cutting in my opinion.dumbbells are great for stability and to even out lagging body parts.Switching to them for a month can actually make you stronger on your barbell lifts!You get plenty of tricep work with the DB benchpress+push ups+dips.Enough to stimulate them anyway.Biceps are worked plenty aswell if you choose chin ups!You get the incline curls+chin ups and you get alot of front delt from using DUMBELLS for your pressing movements.

Don't change your lifting routine. Always train with as much intensity as possible. Losing fat is going to happen mainly through diet manipulation and cardio.M.Ed. Ex Phys

an increase in blood sugar causes an increase in insulin which causes an increase in adipose tissue. so avoid foods that cause a quick dramatic increase in blood sugar namely, carbs.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.
