Have a little faith, You will leave the gym everyday knowing you will lift more the next, you wont feel as tired or as run down, niggly injuries will heal, if you bear with it uou will see the value of this type of training

IMO, it looks like a lot of unneccessary exercises and a lot of exercises not well-suited to low rep work (leg curls, lunges, lateral raises).  I'd keep it simpler and do something like this:

Monday:
Flat or incline bench
Weighted dips
Hang clean
Skullcrushers or close grip bench

Tuesday:
Deadlift
Weighted pullups
Barbell Row
Barbell curl

Wednesday: off

Thursday:
Barbell or Front Squat
Leg press
Stiff-leg deadlift
Standing calf raise

Friday: repeat Monday's workout

Saturday/Sunday: off

5x5 for all exercises, rotating 3 workouts over a 4-day split.

why do you think "some exercises aren't suited for low rep work"?

Uh, because they're not.  Especially the delt raises he wanted to do.  Going down to 5 reps means he'll either a) swing the weights like a ####, b) rip his rotator cuff in half, or c) all of the above.

Seriously, this isn't exactly a new concept - single-joint exercises are poor choices for low-rep mass and strength-building, with very minimal exceptions.

As opposed to you, who has a _____ pound bench and a ______ squat. 

Why are you even on the training log board?  I'd be surprised if you even work out.

hahahahaa, we can't all be as strong as you, check out this log, MASSIVE 30 pound dumbbell farmers walks. Grin

Thanks, I appreciate the kind words.

Wednesday, 11/26

Abs/GPP
Swiss Ball Knee-Ins (30 second rest)
9, 8, 7

Lat Pulldown Crunch (60 second rest)
70x15
2x70x12
70x10

Farmer's Walk up stairs, no straps (60 second rest)
30x3 trips
30x2 trips
30x1 trip

Just something to boost my work capacity.  I took the swiss ball knee-ins off the elitefts.com video index for exercises, and they're fucking brutal.  I think it's Hannah Johnson who demos them and cranks off 10-12 with her hands elevated on a decline bench like it's nothing.  I had to bring my hands onto the floor and was still wobbling like a complete pansy.

Again, as opposed to the _____ you use.  I'd be shocked if you can even walk up and down 2 flights of stairs 3 times without needing to stop for a nap.
