Workout advice. Everyone look at this
Whats up fellas, tell me what you think about my routine. I plan on doing cardio every morning when i wake up. Then hit the weights later. i plan on doing 5 sets for each exercise 12, 10, last three to failure. I want to drop my bf% by half. i think i lose 2-3 pounds a week and i shouldn't lose any muscle mass. My diet is going to consist of High protein low-carbs and a lot of attitude. if anyone has any advice i would appreciate it.

Legs: day 3
Day 4: rest
Shoulders: day 5

Bent over Lats
Biceps: Day 6

I don't think u wrote this very clear, i don't even see a chest workout or a calves exercise in there. I think u should maybe post a new thread so we can clearly tell what u're working out when, and what exercises go on what day. At a glance it looks like u might have some overlap and u might be overtraining some parts,but its kinda hard to tell.
The key thing is to get out of the gym in an hour or less. Keep your workouts intense and short, u're looking more towards maintaining muscle rather then building it.
I think most ppl here would agree that 2-3lbs per week is too much and that u will be losing a good hunk of muscle every week. I think Dr. D recommended somewhere that he thought u should lose only about .75 lb a week. Looking at the workout, i think i see 6 day a week split, i don't think that u necessarily need to be in the gym that much while u're cutting, i would even suggest going down to 4 days/week and of course do as much cardio as u need. If u find your weight is "stuck", add in more cardio accordingly and gradually increase it as u progress along your diet.

One thing .. I'd train bis & tris together on the same day, 2-3 excercises and keep it around 8 & 10 sets respectively. You could also do a little forearm work on that day. With what you have in your plan, that is just too much for such small muscle groups.

Why is your tricept workout the day before your chest?

Why don't you do dumbells instead of bench I feel it works a lot better... Toss bench in once in a while for a change... But I always use dumbells for chest and shoulders..
