    Thoughts on my new routine?

    I had been following a routine similar to WBB1 with decent results, but I came up with a new routine vaguely similar to wbb1.1 that I think may work better. What are your guys thoughts on it?

    Lower Day 1
    Deadlifts
    Front Squat
    Pull Through
    Calf Raises

    Upper Day 1
    Bench
    Incline Bench
    Dips
    Cable Rows
    Close Grip Pulldowns
    Shoulder Press
    Curls

    Rest

    Lower Day 2
    Squat
    Leg Press
    Lunges
    Good Morning
    Abs

    Upper Day 2
    Chinups
    DB/BB Bent over row
    Decline Bench 2 sets
    Cable Flys
    db lateral raises
    Close Grip Bench

    Rest

    Rest

    Repeat

    O and it will be sets of 4x5-8 for bench, squat, dl, and 3x5-8 for everything else

    I like the lower days, but I would probably mix the upper days up a little to hit back and chest twice a week. It seems like Upper Day 1 is a "Chest Day" and Upper Day 2 is a "Back Day". I'm not a big fan of that.

    Tofer- How do you like the edits? I'm kind of hesitant to completely seperate the chest/back exercises from eachother as I like doing multiple of the body part together as opposed to apart because I feel like I work them better. So I added a few back exercises to the "chest day" and vise versa.

    It's not bad.

    I don't have really any suggestions besides doing free weight exerises totally. Like db rows instead of cable etc.

    Looks solid.

    Agreed. I split up your upper days similar to how mine are split up:

    Lower Day 1
    Deadlifts
    Front Squat
    Pull Through
    Calf Raises

    Upper Day 1
    Bench
    Incline Bench
    Cable Rows
    DB/BB Rows
    Curls

    Rest

    Lower Day 2
    Squat
    Leg Press
    Lunges
    Good Morning
    Abs

    Upper Day 2
    Chinups
    Shoulder Press
    Dips
    Close Grip Bench
    db lateral raises

    Just an idea...

    o come on there's nothing wrong with leg press if its in addition to things like squat and deadlift.

    Outshine- I like how you split up the upper days, I think I'll probably go with that.
