    Starting an upper/lower, heavy/light routine, wondering what you guys think.
    Goal is for strength and size.

    MONDAY : UPPER HEAVY

    BB Bench: 5X5 working up to 5RM
    Pullups: 4 x max
    Incline DB Bench: 5X5 with 7RM
    Underhand BB Row: 5X5 with 7RM
    Dips: 4 X max
    Push Press: 5X5 with 7RM

    Thinking of just taking out incline on this day.

    TUESDAY: LOWER HEAVY

    ATG Squat : 5X5 working up to 5RM
    Deadlift: 5X5 working up to 5RM
    Leg Press 4X6 with 7RM
    Standing Calf Raises 4X8 with 10 RM

    WEDNESDAY: ABS AND ETC

    This would normally be a rest day, but i'd rather do some stuff not too demanding and would help out.

    Ab Work
    Shrugs 4X8 with 10RM
    Farmers Walk (deadlifts are starting to slip, need to begin working on grip)
    Shoulder Health

    THURSDAY: UPPER VOLUME

    DB Bench: 3X8
    DB Bent over Rows: 3X8
    CG BB Bench: 3X8
    DB Curls: 3X8
    Standing Military: 3X8

    FRIDAY: LOWER VOLUME

    Lunges: 3X8
    SLDL: 3X8
    Step Ups: 3X8
    Good Mornings: 3X8
