Noob Seeking Advice!

Hello everyone, im 19, 5’11’’ and 158 lbs. and i just wanted to know what do you think about the routine that i wanna follow, basically it’s the Chad Waterbury’s Big Boys Basics program, but with some minor modifications. Im a beginner and my goals are mass and strenght.

Obs: English is not my first language… sorry for the weird stuff :stuck_out_tongue:

Day 1
*BB Bench press 8 x 3 @ 5RM
*Seated rows 8 x 3 @ 5RM
*Pull ups 8 x 3 @ 5RM
*Push press 8 x 3 @ 5RM
*Farmers walk 3 x 1 Min

Day 2 (Lower Body) Sets / Reps / Load

*Deadlift 3 x 8 @ 10RM
*Twists with cable machine 3 x 8 @ 10RM
*Standing Calf Raises in smith machine 3 x 8 @ 10RM

Day 3 (Cardio for Recovery) Cardio

Day 4 (Upper Body) Sets / Reps / Load

*Standing EZ BB Curls 3 x 8 @ 10RM

Day 5 (Lower Body) Sets / Reps / Load

Cable situps 4 x 6 @ 8RM
Seated Calf Raises 3 x 12 @ 14RM

Tell me, i screwed it up??? Please specially comment this aspects:

  • I know that lacks of unilateral work… its to bad if i sustain this for like three months and then i add some unilateral exercises?

  • Adding the dips… they are just great

  • What about those abs exercises… a waste of time??

*What about that shoulder superset… i put it in there because it’s a relatively light day, and i think i need it because my rear delts are a little left behind.

*I changed the 8x3 set/rep configuration for abs and calf to 4x6 and 3x12… anyway this rep/set are different to the 3x8 of the previous training session.

Thanks for reading this! I will be expecting your comments!
