I'm going on vacation to a beach in around January (giving me 5 months time) and would appreciate help structuring a program to get me as lean and strong as I can within the time frame. Please no "do what makes you happy" comments, I just want to gauge the opinions of other bodybuilders as I am a "newbie". Pictures can be found in my gallery.

My current plan is clean bulk for 3 months then cut 2lbs a week for 2 months. I'm concerned that 2 months cut won't be long enough to get me a 6 pack and I'll just end up losing muscle for nothing. Should I cut for 3 months while slowly increasing lifts then clean bulk for 2 months? Or clean bulk first for 2 months then cut for 3? Should I just abandon my 5 month plan and am I better off pushing for next summer instead with longer cycles (an option I'd like to avoid if possible)?

Here is my workout schedule:

Monday (back & legs):
Deadlift 3x5
Cable rows 4x8
Lat pulldown 4x8
Weighted Lunges 3x10
Leg press 3x10
Weighted calf raises 3x15

Tuesday (chest & shoulders):
Incline bench 3x8
Flat bench 3x8
Uppercut holds 3x10
Overhead press 4x8
Front raises 3x15
Side raises 3x15

Wednesday (arms):
Dumbbell hammer curls 3x16 (8 each arm)
Preacher curls 3x8
Isolation curls 3x8
Tricep dips 3x5
Military press 3x10
Tricep pulldown 4x8

Thursday (chest shoulders):
Incline chest fly's 3x10
Decline bench 3x5
Uppercut holds 4x8
Arnold press 3x8
Face pulls 3x10
Shrugs 3x15

Friday (back legs):
Back squat 3x5
Romanian deadlift 3x5
Pull ups 3x5
Bench dumbbell rows 4x8
Vertical jump 3x10
Weighted squat holds against a wall 3x max

Do you think I can reach a lean/6 pack but more muscular (than I am currently) figure in 5 month's time?

Thanks for the help!

NOTE: I'm 19 years old not 48! And I'm 183cm 184lbs (don't know BF%)

Why did you need two threads for this?

I'm new here and didn't know where this post belonged. I figured one of them would get closed/someone would point out I'm posting in the wrong place.

I'll just let this one die out, unless I can somehow delete it.

Just PM a mod to get it deleted. Mods have green names.
