    Agreed with Klotz on the squats.

    It seems like a tremendous amount of upper work.

    below is just a suggestion.....

    MON

    BB bench 5x5
    Squat 5 x 5
    BO rows 5x5
    Low back/ham exercise (Goodmornings, Hypers, SLDLs, Pullthrus etc)

    WED

    Deadlifts 5 x 5
    Military 3 x 5
    Pullups as many as I can (unbelievably hard)
    Step Ups/Lunges 3x8


    FRI

    Incline bench 4 sets x 8
    Front Squats 4 x 8
    BO rows 4 x 8
    Dips (weighted if possible)
    Low back/ham exercise (Goodmornings, Hypers, SLDLs, Pullthrus etc)
    Just an idea as I said. Try and balance things out a bit further. I would have heavy days Mon and Wed and a higher rep day Fri. It all really depends on your goals. As mentioned, I would do the squats as first exercise.

    ^--I defintely agree with the inclusion of dips insterad of tricep pulldowns. I would change the pull ups to 3x5 or something instead of just one set to failure. Also, I would throw in some calf exercises but you may not need to.

    Well, it wouldnt do any harm to throw in some calves a few times a week. Some curls would be fine too.

    I would however get some Abs done on each day though. Forgot to mention that.
