From bulk to ripped

Hi all,
looking for input on going from bulked to ripped.
I am currently 16 stone and going to do one more PH cycle in April which will last 4 weeks.
Looking to get to 16.5+ then straight into ripping.
I have never done this part of training before so ide appreciate advice on diet and training.

    do you mean youve never trained before or never cut before?

    The main part is down to your diet, then upping cardio alongside this.

    Take a look at the articles section in the top left for soe good choices for a cutting diet, or post your proposed cutting diet in the relevant section and people will tweak it.

    I don't think upping cardio is necessary. It might speed things up but it can affect recovery massively, you don't have to do it. I'm two months into a cut and I've lost a few % bodyfat so far and I've done no cardio except a random 5aside football match last week.

    Like Nath said, it's all in the diet. You see chumps around the gym (I've heard PTs saying it too) that when you're cutting you should do light weights and high reps. These people need their mouths stitching up.

    I wholeheartedly recommend the leangains approach to dieting.

    cheers both. In response to naththebeast - ive been training for a few years now but never cut.

    Ill check out the article to see what i can find. I am considering doing the following (my mate is doing this diet and it worked amazingly - lost a stone yet retained all muscle)

    Sunday to Friday - 4 chicken breats, can of tuna, fruit, veg and 3 protien shakes a day.
    Saturday - anything you want

    Cardio - 15-20 minutes a day moderate walking/cycling
