I like the plan Jay. The only change I would suggest is to do pull-ups before dips on Military Press day.

I made my best gains on squats when I did them 2X per week.
Thanks Jim! The routine has dips before chin/pull ups. I've been doing it that way since I started. I skip dips sometimes but either way it seems to work ok for me.

I have no "real" goal with the squats on Deadlift day. I just haven't been making much progress in upping the weight with my squats. Maybe because I've been going up in everything else the squats are suffering some. I just figured if I did more squats, on a different day, I could maybe improve my squat numbers. I thought lighter weight, 50%, and whatever reps, thought 15 would be good, that I could benifit. The only time I've squatted more than once a week was on starting strength, but I didn't like 3 times a week.
That's why I posted his question. I'm trying to improve my squats some
Thanks!
