    I am looking to add/maintain muscle/strength while I am cutting down. What do you think of this routine:

    monday - squat, legs
    tuesday - incline, db bench, shoulders
    wednesday - snatch, back
    thursday - clean, front squat
    friday - bench, incline db, triceps

    I am thinking of doing either 4x8 or 4x6...not sure yet. What do you all think?

    maintaining muscle mass while cutting down is waaaay more dependent on your diet. have a good clean diet and high reps on a solid program w/ morning cardio and you should get pretty cut.

    I would do something more basic, use recovery time efficiently, train every other day maybe, I would use a 6 to 8 rep range even while cutting this will give your muscles a reason to maintain fibbers as already mentioned look more in to your diet
    Keep the sets to a minimum..
    A basic routine

    Monday( chest shoulders triceps)
    Off
    Wednesday (legs)
    Off
    Friday (back biceps)

    Chest 6-8 sets 3 exercises.
    Triceps 5-6 sets 3 exercises.
    Shoulders 3-5 sets 2 exercises.
    Biceps 4-6 sets 2-3 exercises.
    Back 7-9 sets (depending if your working trap) 4 exercises.
    Legs 6-8 sets 3-4 exercises.

    High reps does not = cutting.
