    The 3-day split looks good.

    Personally I prefer doing bent-over rows with a fresh lower back. Also doing 5x5 back squat followed immediately by 5x5 front squat is quite a lot of legwork to do in...

    Front squats vs normal squats

    If you're doing deadlifts twice a week would be it ok/(better?) to do front squats instead of normal squats? You're already hitting glutes and lower back a lot with deadlifts. I prefer the feeling of...

    My gym used to have a belt, and I wore it often. About 18 months ago it disappeared, and I haven't used one since. I prefer it this way - it's just one less thing to worry about.
