Metalwizards is off to a bad start
Default Critique my routine

Hi, so I am new to these forums and I've been working out consistently for about 10 months. I did starting strength for the last 7-8 months and recently completed it.

I plan to run a few cycles of Madcow in about 2 months, but for now I am trying out a new routine that avoids back squatting 3x a week and works in front squats and few other different work outs.

My main goal is to continue gaining strength while adding just a slight bit of vanity and variety to the mix.

Front Squat 3x5
Romanian DL 3x5
OH Press 3x8
3x5-8 pullups

Incline dumbbell press 3x8
BB bench press 3x5
weighted dips 3x5
10x2 gorilla explosive pushups

Chinups 3x10
dumbbell bent over rows 3x8
Rack pulls 3x5
Sumo DL heavy 1x5
Light hang/power cleans

My main goal is here is to balance my lagging parts while keeping up my other lifts; my back is still pretty weak compared to my chest, thought my dl is decent. I am doing Romanian dl's to work my hamstrings, but would prefer another ham compound if possible. Would front squats and low bar back squats be an even better setup?

I also wouldn't mind another shoulder compound shoulder exercise, anything but upright rows (which kill my shoulder). I am considering front squatting 3x a week, because my front squat is 90lbs lower than my back and wouldn't mind getting it higher.

What do you guys think?
