    It still looks like a split workout. A full body from what I understand is something you do every workout. These do seem to work the same muscle groups. So I guess it can work. I do a full body but it is usually 8 compounds every workout though.

    From 155 lbs to 200 lbs (PICS/VIDS INCLUDED)

    Height: 6'0"; BW: 202lbs; Age: 24; BF: ~11%
    155lbs [07-01-06] 176lbs [09-14-06] 179lbs [09-21-06] 182lbs [10-02-06] 184lbs [10-18-06] 186lbs [10-23-06] 187lbs [11-08-06] 189lbs [11-19-06] 190lbs [11-21-06] 191lbs [12-21-06] 194lbs [12-31-06]

    Bench: 250lbs; Squat: 350lbs lbs; Deadlift: 430 lbs

    Looks good, although 5x5 on all the exercises can be a killer.

    If you find it too difficult, then I would recommend 5x5 for the squats and bench on the mon and fri, and 5x5 on the deads and overhead presses on the wednesday. The other exercises can be 3 x 8-12 or something. Perhaps the pull ups can be 5x5 as well, I don't find them to be too exhausting.

    Those are exactly the exercises I'd choose as well.

    Thanks for yalls input. I'm going to try this for a couple of weeks to see how i like it. If i eat right i think this can be a good workout for me. But superman i see what your saying, i wanted to do like 7 exercises a day but i dont want to get burned out. I'm do this for a while then maybe add an extra compound exercise each day as i progress and get used to the work capacity.

    I just looked at Bill Star's intermediate workout and I really like it. Im wondering if I should do Bill Star's workout instead of the one I posted. What do you guys think?
