Fandango's DC Training Log

So this will be my training log for my current DC workout program. I started a few months ago, so this will jump right into it. The days for lifting will be a little sporadic based on my schedule at school, but I am usually able to get 3 lifts in a week. I have modified the order of exercises slightly because I have done biceps/forearms first before and I feel a lot better going balls to the wall on my first lift (being quads). The order for the A workouts is the usual exercise. Any thoughts on this modification?
