But is this the appropriate thing to do or do I need to go about this in a different way?
You need to look around the site for people that have actually accomplished shit in their life and not just read an article, and humbly ask them for advice.
You have a great base, and I think a full out cut is going to fuck up your gains.

Are you wanting to eventually be bigger and leaner than you are now? If yes, I wouldn’t trim at this point–you have less fat than you probably think.
If you just want to see your abs and don’t mind losing some size, by all means go ahead with your cut–just don’t rush it.
Either way, focus on getting your diet down first, always try to get stronger, and depending on whether you want to gain or lose–make SMALL adjustments to your diet based on how you respond.
