Are you new or an intermediate lifter? If you are an intermediate, I think you should decrease the volume on the dead lifts if you plan on going 85-95% of your max. It's gonna dig a hole in your recovery.also I would take out Leg Curls and replace Lat Pulldown with weighted pull-ups. Just my 2 cents

Intermediate.

Thanks for all the ideas. However, I like keeping leg curls in my routine because my hamstrings are lacking a little bit compared to my quads, and I feel over the past 6 months or so they helped a lot in bringing them up.

I'll use the weight pull-ups in place of the lat pull downs. I don't know why I didn't think of that, hahaha. Maybe I'll just alternate the two... hmmm.

How would you do your deadlifts? Ramp up to one set of 5?

Two days a week?
Progression scheme?

I'd shuffle things around a bit. . .

A:
Squat 3x5
Leg Press 3x15
Bench Press 3x5
Incline Bench 3x10
Rows 3x10
Calves

B:
OHP 3x5
Deadlift 1x5
Leg Curls 3x15
Lat Pulldowns 3x15
Side Laterals / Rear Laterals (alternate) 3x20
Curls (added these)

Looks much more balanced now

Would be 3 days per week, alternating A and B workouts.

Progression would be once I hit that weight for those reps, I'd increase weight.

I'm actually going to hold off on this routine for now. BtB showed me something else that might be more up my ally.

How come? You think recovery is going to be poor? I've done something similar in the past and kept my calories high and was fine.

Ya, I think recovery could be an issue, especially for the shoulders and possibly the low back. I'm just a big believer that three day routines should be split are abbreviated past the beginner stage.

Like I said, BtB showed me something a little more up my alley. Thanks none the less for your knowledge!
