Rep ranges seem very high, not really sure what you'd be building with this except time in the gym.

Can you pick an established program and run with that first. Unless your fried looks the way you want to I wouldn't be following purely based on such advice.

Also, height, weight, quantifiable goals would help us give you a better answer.

He is 208, 6'3" looking to go from 11% down to 7% , im about the same myself. late 20's..

I dont like the structure personally... it looks like an overtraining nightmare because of all the compount movements using high volume and the fact that you're hitting the same parts multiple times a week. I've used many programs in the past using more of a simplistic approach, but he wants to try some new rep ranges to stay away from weight for a little white.

A lot of stuff by SilverBack (SB) has given me some great progress in the past, I was actually a client of his back in the day...

Ok, you may want to post the program again else the thread won't make sense.

3 x 15 seemed like an odd rep range for all movements.

I'm not sure the level you're at but a well constructed total body program or 4 day upper/lower split or the 5 day split explained by Kingbeef in this same forum are all good starting points.

You want to improve body composition I guess? meaning diet needs to be excellent and working on a progressive increase in weights. If you can do 15 reps most would say it's way too light. 4-6, 6-8, 8-10, 10-12 are more logical.
