I'm posting this to ask if I should move any exercises around or add/remove exercises.

I'm training for strength in Bench press and increasing my clean and jerk
I won't have access to bumper plates for a couple months so this is what I came up with for a training program.

Any input would be very much appreciated.

Day 1
Bench press 5x5
Incline bench 3x5
close grip bench 3x5
Standing military press 3x5
Shrugs 3x10

Day 2
Front squat 5x5
Back squat 3x5
Deadlift 3x5
lat pull downs 3x10
hammer curls 3x10
concentration curls 3x10

I'm no expert, but it seems to me that you have way too many pressing movements in your day 1 workout. Maybe pick two of them and supplement them with some isolation exercises as accessory work to bring up any specific weaknesses you might have, be it shoulders or triceps.

Yeah, too much pressing. You planning on repeating Day 1 and Day 2 again that week? If so, break up those workouts into 4 days.

Additionally, if your traps are sore from day 1, deadlifting on day 2 is not gonna be fun...

Do you NEED bumper plates to clean? Or jerk, for that matter?
