I need deadlifts in here but not sure where to put them. Squats and deadlifts would be killer same day, and deadlifts right after leg day wouldn’t be good either. And also thinking about rack pulls with snatch grip on back day.

Why have a separate arms day and chest/triceps and back/biceps? Seems like your arms are getting more volume than everything else. No love for Abs?

Well, you didn’t write down a workout, just a list of exercises and rep/set schemes. That’s like 10% of bodybuilding training…nothing to rate.

Also, add stiff-leg deadlift variation after curls on leg day. Yes, you can do squats and stiff-legs in same workout.

Alright I suppose? I think too much arm volume as well… Unless you’re enhanced then knock yourself out! Ive learned that being aware of your routine and the things that do or do not work for you. I use to read MD articles about those pro’s workout, and this schmo’s workout and I’ve learned that trial and error is the gameplan. If that’s enough for you to make gains keep it up.

I can take out back and bis after chest and back. I’ve never done a workout with an “arms” day so id like to try it. I’m looking for a workout strictly for hypertrophy. If you guys have better ideas please let me know.

I’ve been looking at his articles. I’ve stolen some movements already from him. Does he have programs on here?

Yup, check out the mountain dog series. I would say they are more like templates than actual programs. A guidline if you will.
