Session/ cyles info request

Hi. I hear alot about seesions/cycles in training... like bulking cycles and then toning cycles.
I just want to know how long each should be and which comes after which, and if anyone could recommend a 3day (1hour a day) workout routines for each cycle.
Thanx very much

    Im more interested in shaping and size, dont care much for strength.
    I need to know if u should do 5x5 with the routine i already have, or should i do the frankie ny 5x5 routine?

    No legs at all?

    Can you list your full routine as I suspect that it is't the most optimum way for you to train to achieve those objectives. List exercises, sets, reps, etc. Cheers bro.

    I've lately been doing Frankie NY's 5x5 routine.
    But my OWN routine was 3 days a week with rest in between. I only get an hour in the gym.
    Day1
    Bench press (5x5)
    Chins/lat pulldown (5x5)
    Inclined Dumbell Press (5x5)
    Rowing (5x5)
    Dumbell Shoulder Press (5x5)
    Then maybe some lateral raises or dips depending on time left.

    Day2
    Preacher curls (5x5)
    Hammer curls (5x5)
    Lying Triceps Extension (5x5)
    Dips (5x5)
    Bentover lateral Raises (5x5)
    Cardio with few minutes left

    Day3 - same as day1
