How Is This Routine?

this one is actualy from a muscle and fitness magasine. how is it ?

DB squat + overhead press - 3 sets - 10, 8, 6 reps
DB pushup + row - 3 sets - 10 , 8 , 6 reps
DB deadlift + upright row - 3 sets - 10, 8, 6
DB pullover + press - 3 sets - 10, 8 , 6 reps
woodchoper - 3 sets - 15 , 12 , 10
Db V sit - 3 sets - 12 , 10, 8
Alternating dumbell curl - 2 sets - 10 , 8 reps
Db kickbass - 2 sets - 10 , 8 reps

I was thinking that Id do the same reps 2 times in a row and then cut back 2-4 reps and go heavier and then go back, well, play around with the reps. what do you think?

Better than doing nothing, but it could stand some tweaking. For one thing, where is the progression, I mean absolute beginners can perform the same workout over and over again and make progress, but there are better alternatives than that. I’d cut out the up right rows and just do deadlifts. I’d also do them first with a heavier rep range. ex 5x5 Kickbacks??? No. Read on this site and you should find some stuff that is better than that.
