I am in need of help

Hello everyone. I have a couple questions that I would love someone to help me with. I just started working out regularly 2 months ago. I have the following schedule:
Mondays: Chest
Tuesdays: Tris
Wednesdays: Legs
Thursdays: Back and Shoulders
Fridays: Bis
I am taking Designer Whey Protein supplement for about 4 times a day (35g Protein each) and Glutamine once after the workout. I am 25 years old, 6'2 and weighing about 190lbs.
I have learned that I must stop cardio in order to gain some mass, and then after the gain, I should start cardio to get cut. My question is what kind of a cardio program I should follow in order to get cut after gaining mass? How many times a week? How many hours a session? If anyone could help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance,
Oz

    That it the worst possible training split you could do mate, how did you come up with that?

    As a beginner you shouldnt train more than 3 times per week, 4 times a total max.

    also, what are your goals? if you're just beginning a training regimen, you don't need to be concerned with cutting AT ALL. your focus should be on developing lean balanced muscle mass. to achieve this requires a mix of cardio, weight training, and proper diet. you may want to check out some of Frankie NY's posts for different routines and general knowledge .. keep in mind though, they are usually geared towards people with at least 6 months of training under their belt.

    Hello PikeKing,
    Thanks for replying. I actually have been working out for about 3 years, but I was working out very wrong. So I started to work out correctly only two months ago. This is why I have the current work out schedule. I actually am not a beginner, but beginner to this program. What do you think about cardio? How much cardio I should do in my cutting phase. I appreciate your reply.

    start off with a bit of cardio and then gradually build up..u can also try HIIT session, but i also think u should change ur current weights routine...make sure to keep ur protein intake high and have whey in water straight after and maybe before, depending when u do the cardio...

    you can do cardio when your trying to gain mass as well. just not as much as if you were trying to get cut. it will slow your fat gains while bulking.

    I agree with YIT, build your way into it. start with 2 days a week and add a day each week until your doing 6 days a week or to your prefered amount.

    Thanks for replying. I wanted to know what is wrong with my weight training. Youngitalianbabe told me that I should change it. What should I change it to? I thought this was a decent one. Thanks.

    Ok, here is my new routine thanks to your replies (YIB).
    PULL
    Deadlifts, Wide Grip Chins, Close Grip Underhand Chins

    PUSH
    Flat Bench Press, Dumbbell Shoulder Press, Dips

    LEGS
    Squats, Stiff Leg Deadlifts, Calf Raises(3x12), Weighted Crunches(3x12)

    Now here is one last question (hopefully):

    I will be doing these exercises 5x5. I am not sure how to add weight to Dips and Chins because I think I should be adding weight as I get stronger. Any ideas?

    To add weights to dips you can either use a belt made for the job (like a weight belt but with a chain to hang weights from), or get a length of chain and a D-shackle and use that to hang weights of your regular weight belt.
