That was me. Glad you like the idea. It's always served me well.

As far as the workout, a few suggestions:

1) Wednesday bench. I would drop the bench pressing movement from Wednesday. You have 3 flat bench movements and one overhead press movement and one overhead which is a little unbalanced.

2) Squats and deadlifts. I would move split squats and squats (either way) to Monday and Friday and place deadlifts on Wednesday. This will provide a more balanced posterior chain approach.

3) Pullups. I would drop one of the pullup days and add a heavy row...dumbbell or barbell. I believe that pullups, rows and deadlifts provide a well-rounded back approach.

A note to anyone reading, the "rep goal" of 20 is not 20 reps per set, but rather a total goal of 20 reps for all 3 sets.

There are many other ways to cook an egg, as they say, so other members will have some great suggestions.
Great suggestions.

Great routine. It makes a lot of sense to me. Take the suggestions offered by BendtheBar for better overall balance. I hope you see some great gains!
