I like doing 5 excersizes with 5 sets each...and that's me now, the most important thing is the intensity that you use in each rep. You can do 12 sets total but if you're really pushing it, you will be ok. If you're throwing weight around rocking or generally using bad form or too light of weight, you're not going to get anything out of it.
Find out what works best for you and make sure you have your intensity levels VERY high!

A couple of suggestions. Scientifically speaking muscle growth by resistance training occurs at a max rate following the below principles.
12-20 consecutive sets per body part (split into 2-5 exercises)
30s-1:30 rest interval between sets
6-12 rep range
By training hard with hypertrophy training and performing cardio and diet to lose the fat, you should be able to trim down and still keep your strength gains. Keep lifting as hard as you can, continually lifting more weight on every exercise you can.
I would keep my rest intervals around 45s to 1min. Increase your ab workouts and lat workouts to give a optical illusion. The wider your back is the trimmer you look. You could also look into circuit training with little rest between exercises/sets.
