    i wanted to keep the basic strength movements (bench/squat/dl) while adding in some isolation work as well.

    also, although it sounds sissy, i also wanted to incorporate more shrugs or neck harness work, since i have a pencil neck and traps :\

    should i just put it with my shrugs or, furthermore, can i do it twice a week?

    im looking for suggestions/possible additions or subtractions. critiques/thoughts appreciated and welcome

    I don't think it looks bad.

    I'd drop the plate raises from day 2.

    Only other thing to consider is RDL could over train you really quickly if you go heavy on it every week. Also I'm a big fan of switching between RDL and Rack Squats.

    That's a lot of tricep work:

    Board press
    DB press

    narrow grip

    but only two for upper back/biceps:
