    Read the stickies in the nutrition section in regards to calories and macros. Your diet is the most important especially when cutting.

    Tough to give advice on training because I dont know what exercises you are doing / rep ranges / number of exercises etc. IMO I would put shoulders and legs together. No sense dedicating half a day to traps

    My current work out, I change exercises every 4 to 8 weeks but this is the latest. Also should mention I have a ruptured disk and herniated disk in my back and one herniated in my neck so I stay away from squats and dead lifts.

    -- Training 4 to 5 days a week for 45 min to 1 hour each day. Just started warm ups before lifting (1 mile run/walk on treadmill).
    * Back and biceps - 3 to 4 sets/6 to 12 reps - (biceps - db curls and or cable curls) (Back - wide or close grip pullups, wide or close grip cable rows, backward flys)
    * chest and tricep - 3 to 4 sets/6 to 12 reps - (chest - Flat db press, cable standing incline and cable declines) (Triceps - cable pull downs and or dips)
    * Shoulders and Traps - 3 to 4 sets/6 to 12 reps - (Traps - db shrugs) (Shoulders - db military press, front and side db raises)
    * Legs (3 to 4 sets/6 to 8 reps - (Leg press, calves raises, hamstring curles, leg extensions) Just started doing lunges and db squats
    * Cardio/abs (20 minutes on Treadmill runnning and spead bag)

    Not bad, you could bump up the volume and add more exercises if you like. Depends on how you feel.

    I have a feeling it has been my lack of cardio (did nothing until this past week) is why I retain some fat around my mid section and my diet could defininetly be improved. This is where I should probably focuss most of my attention now and continue lifting hard.
    When you say bump up volume I assume u mean reps?

    The reason you gained some fat is because you are taking in too many calories and not burning enough. By more volume I mean more sets or exercises.
