FST-7 - Appropriate when cutting?

Hi guys, 
 
I'm currently cutting on a push / pull / legs split with fasted AM cardio 4-5 times per week.  I was doing full body 3x per week for the first 8 weeks when I came down with a nasty chest infection and took a week off.  I've still managed to loose a shade under 1.5 stone in 10 weeks but still have a good stone to go until I finally see my abs for the first time in my life!  As I head towards the final stages of the cut (5-6 weeks left I think) I'm looking switch up my routine a little bit and came across FST-7.  What I'm looking to do is use this for the last exercise on each of these days, and switch it up week to week.  For example : 
 
Pull
Deadlift 3x8
Pull downs / pull ups 3x10-12
Rows 3x10-12
Curls (week 1 FST7, week 2 3x10-12, week 3 FST7, week 4 3x10-12 etc)
Pullovers (week 1 3x10-12, week 2 FST7, week 3 3x10-12, week 4 FST7 etc)
 
Push
 Bench press 3x10-12
Overhead press 3x10-12
Flies (week 1 FST7, week 2 3x12, week 3 FST7 etc)
Dips 3x10-12
Laterals (week 1 3x12, week 2 FST7, week 3 3x10-12 etc)
 
Legs
Leg press 3x10-12
Squat 3x10-12
Ham curl (week 1 FST7, week 2 3x12 etc)
Quad curl (week 1 3x12, week 2 FST7 etc)
James calf killer
 
Is this suitable for a cut or am I likely to end up with more muscle loss than benefit?

Perfect IMO, i was tied between this, or: upper, lower, upper, lower split.

Sorry mate - that doesn't really answer my question.  I wasn't asking about the routine specifically, I was asking if incorporating FST-7 style training into my current routine while cutting was suitable, or if it's a no no because I'm in a calorie deficit?

you could have one fst 7 set per training session, if you have enough carbs on those days. Somewhere around maintainance or slightly beneath that, otherwise i don't recommend your idea.
 
going low carb will deplete glycogen levels somewhat, and having high rep/metabolic work will only deplete them even more, which isn't good on a long run.
if u're going low carb, stick to heavy sets. spare high rep stuff for carbloads/high carb days
