Default

Your A session
A:

BB Press
DB upright row
BB Squat
Front squat
Bench press
Reverse grip bench press (to the clavicle)
BB calf raise
BB seated calf raise (sets of 20)
Dips
Close grip bench press

I would drop about half of that session to look like this.


BB Press
BB Squat
Bench press
BB calf raise
Dips
Ab work

this could be worked as a 5x5, a 3x10, or even a 3x8-12.

This would be a solid program for a beginner. Some of the other moves could be added back in at a later time.


B:

Pull up
DB row
Deadlift
Glute/Ham raise
DB shrug
Wide grip BB row to the chest
BB curl
Drag curl
Wrist curl
Hammer curl

The B session looks like a bit of a mess of moves.

Pull up
DB row
Deadlift
Glute/Ham raise
DB shrug
Wide grip BB row to the chest


All of these are good movements, but doing all of these in the same session seems a bit much.


BB curl
Drag curl
Wrist curl
Hammer curl


4 different curl movements?

The whole B session seems like a shotgun approach. Deadlifts, and one other move should be plenty for back work. The whole session doesn't seem very well thought out, and there is a large amount of overlap.

That's just my opinion.
