    Welcome to the board md!!

    Like I told you, diet will play more of a role in cutting up than your workouts will. Doing high reps in an effort to "tone up" has largely been dismissed. Keep your lifts heavy keep up the intensity. Focus on your diet and add a little cardio.

    Depending on your routine, and your goals, i would recomend, keeping one real heavy movement early in your routine. I personally do this, to keep my strength up, and it makes me feel like I'm keeping size. The rest of my movements for tha body part, I use high reps and short rest periods. Here is an example.

    Legs

    sets reps
    Squat 2-3 4-6
    Leg Press 1-2 15-20
    Leg ext 1-2 15-20
    Leg curl 1-2 15-20

    This is not all I do, at times I'll utilze super and compound sets. Hope this is helpful.
