i'm going to start by saying that you need to understand these few things about your goals and training:
1) being cut and building muscle are really 2 unique goals and that require individual effort. yes, you can lose fat while building muscle, but it will be at the expense of maximal muscle gain because you need a calorie surplus to build muscle, and a deficit to lose fat. simple right?
2) whether your goal is to build raw strength or to gain pounds of muscle, a foundation of strength is important to build FIRST, so that you can lift much heavier weights for many repetitions. i.e. squatting 250 lbs for 3 sets of 12 will put on muscle more efficiently than squatting 135 lbs for 3 sets of 12. also simple.
at 120 pounds, it is my opinion that you need not concern yourself AT ALL with being "cut" and/or losing any weight. how tall are you by the way? this will give us an idea of how much weight you can hope to GAIN.
what kind of equipment do you have access to? starting strength would require a squat rack, barbell, and weights.
let us know this info and we'll go from there.
