Definition & Frankie-type routine

I'm into my 4th week of the 3x8 routine. Right now I'm doing the following:
MON.
Deadlifts
Dumbbell Rows
Barbell Curls
Hammer Curls

WED.
Dumbbell Press
Incline Barbell Press
Dumbbell Shoulder Press
Weighted Dips

FRI.
Back Squats
Stiff-Legged Deadlifts
Seated Calf Raises(3x12)
Weighted Crunches(3x12)

Originally I had planned to go into the 5x5 routine, but I think I'm going to hold off on that for another two 12-week cycles since I need to work on my cardio a bit more before attempting the 5x5.

After I finish the 3x8 cycle, I want to go into a program that will yield more definition. I realize that my diet will have to be adjusted, but I'm unsure as to how many exercises per day, and how many days per week.
I still want to be able to do Squats, Deadlifts, SL Deadlifts, etc, since I welcome more practice without going heavy on those particular exercises.

My long term plans are after completing this 12-week cycle of 3x8, I'll start a 12-week cycle of higher rep sets with less weight. Then I'll go back to another 12-week cycle of Frankie's 3x8 routine. After that, I'll start into the 5x5 routine.

Any help is appreciated!

    Diet yields far more definition than any given number of sets and reps or training methods, nail your diet and for me the routine will take care of itself.
