My intention is to lose fat and gain lean muscle mass. I would consider myself on a bulk right now, but I do expect to lose fat simply due to the fact that I'm getting off my a** and working out again, in addition to the cardio.

What are your thoughts?

your workout schedule seems well planned and quite apt as there is something for each day for a week .. surely this is an organized thinking.. now I'm too thinking to make my own likewise..

I guess the best advice is to try it and see what happens. Not sure why you're only training 3 days, does work / home interfere with more workouts? It might be an idea to do HIIT cardio on non workout days to give more of a balance. Also you don't mention number of reps or sets, rest times or rotation of exercises. If you designed this yourself it's admirable, but if you want to lose fat and gain muscle you may want to try a program designed by someone else until you get into it more. Steve at Project Swole has a great fat loss routine and loads of advice, or just search one of the countless sites with ready made workouts. And finally, real fat loss comes in the kitchen, not in the gym, so eat right, sleep tight and good luck!

you are right and this is why I'm practicing my work out schedule this time

its a good program you got there.

By how many reps do you do in your workout?

My only suggestion is you should do legs first before shoulder or separate you legs from the shoulder workout.
