    Since you are lifting Mon, Weds, Fri just take the weekends off. It makes life easier, but if you want it's fine to just workout every other day. Only comment on the routine, add weight to the Pullups. You can do sets of 12, 10 and 10 it's time to add weight.

    might sound like a stupid question, but how do you add weight to pullups?

    There is a belt you can get that has a chain on it. you thread the chain through the weights. A cheap way to do it is buy some chain and a couple clips of some sort. Clip one end to the buckel on your weight belt, add the weight and clip the other end up.
