    i'd drop the leg press and add in Squats. also throw in some Good Mornings, if those are going to be regular Deadlifts.

    just out of curiosity how much are you deadlifting?
    You will soon see Getfit in OngII Flying Knee Thingys of Doom see if the feisty greek can survive the kicks of Steel Leg From Shaolin Soccer,Dim Mak(def touch) from ChungLee,and Flying Crane by Daniel-san-El Pietro

    actually not much because i had a back injury in hockey and just taking the deadlift light and building up. Thats y i dont squat either because im afraid ill injure my back again. So i usually just leg press and now im adding in deadlifts.

    Squats are a helluva lot easier on your back then deadlifts, replace leg presses with them!

    Other than that, the routine looks really good except you should use different rep ranges. For at least one press, pull, and leg exercise you should use heavier weight and less reps(5x5 or 3x3 would be perfect).

    High Rep Squats!! say like 20

    ever heard of breathing squats? or the Super squats program?

    or try the German Volume training 10x10 with squats it will kill ya, but add mass in short order!

    I just completed that program with 275 and I notice the difference not just with my legs but all of my major lifts.
    The difference between the freaks and the flock is the ****ing fork!
    You wanna gain weight? Then it's time to squat!
