    I'm not an expert on routines, but it looks to me as though you've could shuffle things around a bit. I don't understand the logic of doing chest work and then squating. I'd suggest taking a look at WBB1.

    Yea man if your working out 4 days a week like you are, I would suggest just hitting each body part once a week.

    There is no need to your muscles need rest, at least from what I understand. Maybe you could do a 3 day work out, putting compound exercises in each day and switching around the few isolation exercises you can fit in.
