    What routine would you construct with these moves ?

    Ive been training for a fair while now but im wondering what would be the best routine to make out of these moves? I change it every few weeks but dont seem to be getting anywhere.

    I work out at home so ive only got a chin-up bar, bench, and lot's of free weights ( i like to keep it raw anyways ).

    Actually, limited equipment is perfectly fine. It seems you have the basics covered there (ie., lots of solid compound movements like squats/deads/bench/military presses/rows/chinups,etc.). I might ditch the upright rows for fear of rotator cuff damage, but otherwise, you're looking fine. You can also try some olympic lifts such as clean&jerk if you get bored with the basic compound movements.

    Have you looked at the WBB and BGB routines?
    Most of the exercises there you can do.

    i would agree. you have the basics all in place, and you can have some fantastic workouts with just that.

    i would say keep the upright rows as they are a very good exercise, but as mcirish said, rotator cuff damage can occour so be sure your form is good.

    you may want to perform leg extensions for working up, as this is an isolation movement unlike sqats, lunges and the like.
