    When I go in to the gym, I usually do either a 5x5 or a 12,10,8 for reps, with increasing weights.

    Normal Workout:
    Squats
    Deadlifts
    DB Shrugs
    Concentration Curls
    Miltary Press
    Incline DB Press
    Bench DB Press
    Chin Ups
    One Arm Tricep Extensions

    I usually do this workout once or twice a week in an hour.

    I am thinking of adding these lifts to this workout:
    Dips
    Front Squats
    Barbell Rows
    Smith Bench Press
    Barbell Curls
    Close Grip Bench Press

    Insane? Is this overkill for one workout session?

    I would do a split, but I am training for a triathlon that takes up a lot of my time, so I try to squeeze all my lifting in one or two days a week.

    how many days a week do you do this?
    your just doing a full body workout, and depending on your experience and how long you've been lifting its probably too much. split it into 3 or 4 days and youll grow faster and safer.
