    Thanks for all the critique guys keep i coming.

    Sid I cant work out Bis and Tris right after Chest/back though. No problem with Legs right after back though for some reason lol.

    I think I will add some dips Burg and I think I will swap cable for hammer on the curls

    Cheers mates

    also you might try some good mornings to hit the posterior chain on leg day. personally i like them a lot better than sldl's. you might try switching up skulls for dips some days as well. those are two staples of my routine, good mornings and dips.

    4 days in a row, with heavy volume and 1 day rest? How much drugs are you going to be on in order to pull that off?

    Needs more cowbell.
