    incase you dont know its this:

    Day 1
    Bench Press 5x5
    Incline flys 3x8
    flat flys 3x8
    Tricep extensions 4x6
    tricep pushdowns 3x8
    Incline russian twists 3x6 (to each side)
    Straight leg raises 4x6

    Day 2
    Deadlift 5x5
    Bent over rows (db is fine) 3x8
    Pull ups 3 sets to failure (if > 10 then weight them)
    Olympic barbell curls. Be very strict on form don't move elbows at all. 3x8
    Preacher curls 3x8
    Hammer curls 3x8
    Saxon bends 3x6 to each side
    Decline bench sit ups weighted, 3x8

    Day 3
    Squats, all the way to the ground 5x5
    Front squats 3x8
    GHRs 5x5 (if you can't find a good spot to do them, leg curls will work, but try to do GHRs)
    Shoulder press (dbs or barbell) 5x5
    Lateral raises 4x6
    Rear delt flys 3x8

    _____________________________

    my question is, when should i take breaks? i was thinking 1 day of no working out per cycle (day 1: day 1 workout, day 2: day 2 woirkout, day 3: day 3 workout, day 4: rest, day 5: day 1 workout, day 6: day 2 woirkout, day 7: day 3 workout, day 8: rest is 10 lbs like 20lbs for man how i explain) etc

    (id like to workout as much as possible, but just below overtraining)
