    wow dude, you do a lot of volume, but if it works for you then go for it. Perosnally i don't think you need to change the routine per se, but you will find that as you cut and you shed weight and become calorie deficient then you weights will probably begin to decrease. You might begin to feel tired a lot as well. If this is the case then i would reduce you volume a bit and focus on lifting as heavy as you can on what you keep...
     
    Also, your bicep back day, you gotta be doing back before biceps mate. And where are the deadlifts? IMO i would change the order of your days because you have back and legs, the 2 largest muscle groups, right next to each other and i would never be able to get the most out of training them that way.

    Yeah its kinda tailored from animalpaks routines - I don't need to cut an incredible amount so it might be 2 months max then to  bulking so hopefully won't deplete too much.
     
    Good idea moving back and legs about...  thanks for the advice mate will change about
