What do you guys think? Does this look like a good program? Any feedback would help. Thanks

You will get DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).

I would change your routine. For example bench on one day and dips on the next day is not a good idea with DOMS.

I would think in terms of one day a muscle set gets “fried”. The next workout uses a different set of muscles.

I disagree with tall tom…i think you pretty much got it right, if you can handle that volume…

Note that you don’t really need a program like this unless you’re already pretty strong…it’s important to always remember the idea of not using a tool or method until you have to…

That is, if you are still getting stronger using more basic modalities, then you are ‘wasting’ an advanced program such as this…a time will come in your lifting career when you will need something more advanced, and if you’ve already milked it, it will not work as well for you…

that said, if you think you’re ready for this, you’ve set it up fine…

Best of luck
