Critique Routine

I have finally put together my new training routine. I have done body part splits, full body and have now decided to do an upper/lower split. tell me what you think:

Monday: upper
A1) bench press
A2) seated row
B2) DB military press
B3) tricep rope pulldown
C1) Dips
C2) e-z bar curls

Tuesday: lower
A1) squat close stance
A2) decline situps
B1) lunges
B2) cable crunch
C1) leg curls
C2) calf raises

Thursday: upper
A1) Incline bb press
A2) hammer curls
B1) close grip bench press
B2) close grip lat pulldown
C1) lateral raise
C2) standing straight arm lat pulldown

Friday: lower
A1) deadlifts
A2) woodchoppers
B1) widestance squat
B2) leg raises
C1) leg extensions
C2) donkey calf raises

I am still debating on what type of rep/set schemes I should follow any suggestion on that or the routine itself?

how about making it into a EDT type of workout: 2 15 min pr and 1 10 MIN?

Looks pretty good to me now I woulkd just pick two rep set schemes and go at it. Id say heavy one day, moderate another. then after a nice run 6 weeks or so switch the parameters for the days.

anyone?

looks goood.

for the rep schemes would it be a good idea to go 5x5 on mon/tues and 4x10 on wed/fri ?

so today I went through my first workout it was easier than I thought it would be I should have used heavier weigts:

9/18/06:upper

A1)flat bb benchpress: 5x5 @ 135 lbs
A2)seated rows: 5x5 @ 130 lbs

B1) db military press: 2x10 @ 30 lbs
2x10 @ 25 lbs

b2) tricep rope pull: 3x12 @75 lbs
1x12 @65 lbs

c1) dips: 4x10 @ body weight
c2) e-z bar curls: 4x12 @ 35 lbs

I only rested 30 sec between a pair of exercises.
once I got to c1 and c2 I rested 60 sec between a pair.

so how does it look I was concerned about the rep/set scheme should I change it?

hate to do this…bump
