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.

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

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

Fri:
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?
