Default Cutting Journal, no holding back now

Okay im starting a journal for my cutting plan. Any advice on my eating plan, workout schedual, training, ratios, is greatly appreciated. This is a basic layout of my workout and my eating/excercise layout for each day. I do calorie cycleing and i do have varieties of each meal. They always stay around the same calorie intake though.

Im going with 4 day on 1 day off routine, got from the 13 week program which was awsome btw. I finished That program and im going with something new for the next 12 weeks of summer to see how low i can get my bf% and making my muscles as symetrical as i can. Will start the new program tomorrow and will post my specific workouts then. As for suplements i take Multivitamins, Glutamine, HMB, ZMA, Vitamin C, Creatine. (Times based on this sites info)

Current Stats, 165lbs 12% body fat. (was at 180 20% at begining of 13 week plan)

Workout Split
Day 1:Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
Day 2:Back, Abs
Day 3:Biceps, Forearms,
Day 4:Legs
Day 5:Off
Day 6:Start over again

Im giving Biceps and Back focus right now because there lagging behind.

Meal/Day plan

I wasn't planning on going on a bulk until september. My goal was to get lean and cut enough to expose my abs. Then just maintain them till the end of the summer. After the 13 week program i did make really good progress but i still wanna improve. See how lean i can really get. Anyway heres what i did today

Morning Fasted Cardio
25min HIIT Arc trainer cardio, 315 cal, seems a little low cal usage for the time i was on there.

Weight training 2:30-4:00
Weighted dips supersetted with Lateral raises
6,8,10,8
Bench Press supersetted with Front raises
12,10,12
Seated Rear Delts supersetted with incline dumb bells
10,8,10
Closegrip cable pressdown supersetted with Incline Machine Press
12,10,8
Cable Cross over supersetted with Cable Kickbacks
15,12,15

Was a long session because i was showing a newbie around inbetween sets. Hmm starting to think i should reduce my afternoon workout to just 45min-60mins then do 30 mins of cardio at the end. Although i was distracted for a bit. Stuck to eating plan 100% today! 2200 cal
