    the only thing i noticed that i wouldnt try is putting deadlifts in on your leg day, yes deadlifts do work your legs however it hits almost every area of your back...its a great exercise but if your taxing your back on tuesday and thursday just to follow it up with some heavy deadlifts on wed. wheres the recovery? what does the EXERCISE Set #1 Set #2 Set #3 Set #4 Set #5 Set #6 Set #7 mean?

    Go M W F, instead of 5 days in a row... you need to rest.

    Do a full body routine 3 days a week or an upper/lower spilt for 4 days. This way everything gets hit at least twice.
