Day 1: max effort squat
Day 2: dynamic effort bench
Day 3: dynamic effort deadlift
Day 4: max effort bench
Day 5: max effort deadlift
Day 6: dynamic effort bench
Day 7: dynamic effort squat
Day 8: max effort bench

Positives
+ Equal time for upper & lower body
+ Equal time for squat & deadlift
+ Covers dynamic and max effort for all 3 lifts

Negatives
- The squat days will probably help my deadlift, but deadlift probably won't help squat, and...
- ...I only get 2 squat sessions for every 8
- Completing a cycle will take 2 or more weeks
I don't really see the point of a dynamic deadlift day. Your developing speed in all those muscles when you do dynamic squatting. Also, I don't really see giving the same time to both upper and lower body as a positive. Powerlifting is all about lower body. Even Benching becomes an upper AND lower body movement when the weights get bigger. If you were to take out the dynamic deadlift day and the bench day following it then you would have a 6 day rotation, squatting twice during that time.

Just a thought...
