Ok in my selection I've taken off 6 exercises, 2 from Tri's, Bi's and Calves, all the smaller muscles. The bigger muscles (Shoulders, Chest, Back and Legs) all have 5 workouts each except for my Back which has 6. The big muscles will be using my smaller muscles as nearly all lifts are compound so this should emphasize greater size/mass overall and strength gains (I think). I think this is better, any suggestions? (check workout page 2)

For my most major compounds I'm really unsure however... I know I need to lift heavy but how heavy is heavy for 6-8/12 whatever reps? 70% of max or more? Also do you guys advise maybe a change every week or summit that one week it might be 70% max rep for 6-12 and then the next week its 85%ish of max but 5-6 reps etc? I'm really unsure how I should proceed in terms of reps and the weight of main most important big compound exercises. Or do you feel the big 3 (deads, squats, bench) should be always heavy at 85-90% for 5-6 reps?
