Feedback on New Training Regime

Hey, I’m a short time lurker here and I was hoping for some feedback on a new training program I put together, any comments, criticism or ideas are appreciated.

I’m 16, 190lbs, 6’1", ~15% body fat training for around 8 months altogether with a 2 month break.

Please bear in mind this is for CUTTING, with minimal strength loss, I don’t want that “bulk or go home shit…” either, thanks.

I’ll throw a drop set in here or there if I want to boost up the intensity after a few weeks.

I want to try cycling creatine, after not noticing much difference on constant maintenance, when would be the best times to take it over the day?

Training routine looks okay.

Diet also looks good. Around 2500 kcals frontloaded in the morning.

And you’re taking fish-oil. Also good, although try and spread it more throughout the day.

There’s no point to cycling creatine. See Poliquin’s most recent article. Just down 5g PWO.
