I will squat and deadlift once a week to keep everything going.
Main exercices i will focus on bench press, chin ups (shit i can bearly do 6 now), bent rows, deadlifts, squats, bb curls, military press and upright rows.

Hey man whats up?
I looked at your routine, if you are wanting to cut up and lose some weight, try ALOT highrer reps than you are presently doing. You may experience some size loss but you should faily maintain your strenght and the cuts will really make up for the difference. I use to teach an aerobic class and when I look back at some of the pictures that was taken of me then I really was smaller than I have ever been but DAM was I cut up. This seemed to make up for the loss in size.
Increases your cardio. You can never do to much when you are trying to lose weight in a short period of time. I'm not sure about your diet as you did not post it. But I know that I don't have to mention that it is probaly the most important thing right now in reaching your present goals. Good luck.
P.S. I use to wrestle quiet abit myself. Nothing spectular, only 3 years during Junior high.

Oh yeah, I take all of my shakes with fat free milk. I know that there are some that will argue that milk will hinder the protein absorbtion process but I just can't bring mysellf to drink the stuff with water.

I take all my shakes with skimmed milk.its a good source of protein all I would say if you are on a low cal diet and watching your carbs drop the milk and use water as 600ml of milk has around 35g of carbs.

While we are on the subject, are there any good excercises to loose those love handles. I have heard that Twists, are useless, then another PBB, told me that running and cardio will eventually burn those off, . Cause your body has to burn the fat all at once, not just from one specific area. I think I just answered my own question, but anyways, just wanted to see what you guys have to say bout dat!

The only way to lose the weight (love handles) is to watch your diet and do cardio (well, there are other things, but ya know, legally and all) You can always use some type of fat burner (Xenadrine, Hydroxycut). Nutrition is the most important part of it all. The cardio needs to be about 4 - 5 times /week. At least 30 to 45 minutes. You will not start burning your bodyfat until about 20 - 30 minutes into your workout. You will only burn your carbohydrates until then. I usually do my cardio after my weight training in order to decrease the amount of time it takes to start burning my bodyfat.

and i would watch out for creatine. remember, it promotes water absorption, which is opposite of what you are aiming for right (cutting0 ?
