OK, here we go. Starting this routine tomorrow. Everything is 5 sets of 5 reps, ramping up from 35% first set to Max final set, unless otherwise indicated. Since my Squat form stinks, I'm going to start with dumbells to get my form worked out, then switch to bar when I'm ready for that. Also, I'm going to add 1x10 set finishers for most exercises once I'm sure I'm ready for them.

Goblet squats, Not sure of weight yet.
Cleans: Ramping up to 105 - 80% Max
Bench: Ramping up to 185

Push Press: To 125
Cleans: To 115 - 90% Max
Squats: Goblet, 80% Max from Monday
Lats: 2x AMAP Pullups, 2x AMAP Chinups, 1x10 Pulldown

Cleans: To 125
Incline: To 135
Squat To 90% of Monday
Rows: 2x10 T rows at 115, 2x10 seated rows, AMAP inverted rows to finish

Raise weights when able to lift final set to 8 reps two sessions in a row or thereabouts.

I'm currently 188 lbs, and I'm thinking I'll need to add an extra protein session each day, so I'm going to be rejiggering my diet a bit too as I absolutely do not want to gain fat if possible. I'm thinking 180-200 grams of protein a day?

OK, let's see where this goes. Any advice or comments are most welcome.
