Hey

Too much cardio, too much HIIT, and your rep ranges are wrong - you do LOW reps for cutting, not high.

What's your diet like?

Macronutrient breakdown?

High reps for cutting is about 30 years out of date, but it is a myth that simply refuses to die. You'll lose too much muscle if you rely on fatburning from exercise.

Lose WEIGHT through diet. Lose FAT by convincing your body to hang onto muscle - and surprise, high reps does nothing to convince your body that this is necessary. Put it this way - if high reps for cutting worked, you'd see a LOT of ripped soccer moms coming out of toning class at the community centre.

Your rep range and volume for your bulk sounds about the same as what I use. What I did last cut was keep the weights the same, but drop the volume and the rep range as I ran out of steam. I also increased the time between sets so I'd have the energy to lift heavy on reduced calories.

You don't look like you're getting in enough fat. What do your macros work out to?

You already train - cutting is virtually ALL about the diet from this point forward. You simply can NOT exercise off enough of your bodyfat to make it a viable means of cutting.

Get your cutting diet worked out, and prepare to be astonished at what happens to your physique.

Put your planned cutting diet into fitday and post up the grams of protein, carb, and fat, and total cals.

For your diet -

Figure out maint cals

Drop these by 10-20%

Build your diet from at least a gram of protein per pound LBM and at least half a gram of fat per pound LBM (ignore percentages - think "LBM-dependent doses"), and the rest of your cals from whatever combination of protein, carb and fat keeps you satisfied on lower cals.

Save enough food to get you through the hungriest time of the day - for most of us, this is probably the evening, since most of us probably train after work.

Post up your proposed strategy once you get the diet and training worked out.
