Do your cardio at the end of your workout, it burns fat instead of glycogen stores.
And BTW, fat hides muscle. Get rid of all fat you have FIRST.
I'm not that strong (I don't do 315 on the bench)....but I look strong with my shirt off. Well defined pecs, biceps, and abs....mostly bc I have very low body fat.
Keep in mind that genetics plays a very significant role too. You may never look ripped no matter how hard you try.
