Hi. I've been working out for a year and a half now and I've noticed that I have gotten significantly stronger and my muscles have grown over this time. Overall I am happy with my progress. I've generally been doing 3 sets of 10 to a point of failure for everything I do, since I haven't had any formal instruction. I am now more interested in getting cut or ripped or whatever you want to call it, instead of continueing to get bigger. Should I alter the way I do sets/reps for this or should I keep doing what I'm doing and do diet/cardio?

I agree, diet is the key to getting lean, although if you have been doing the same routine for a year and a half you really should change it up.
Your body adapts in approximately 4-6 weeks to any routine, also you should not go to failure every work-out and/or every set.
i vary my workouts and progress with higher weights, lower reps, and increased sets as the program progreses. Alternating upper and lower body muscles day to day. It all centers around 24 reps for each muscle group. Starting with 2 sets of 12, then 3 sets of 8, then 4 sets of 6 with weight increasing to keep the pressure on. im giving muscle groups 2 days off time to recoupe before working them again. Does this sound like a fairly decent routine?
