    Just a couple quick observations

    I would split up your dumbbell pressing movements. If I'm doing seated DB military, I make sure that my Chest movement is a barbell and vice versa. It might not make a difference for you but just something to consider.

    I would change seated leg curls with something different. You should have 3 different exercises for each body part. I suggest sumo squats, sumo leg press, DB leg curls, etc.

    Depending on how your body reacts to SLDL, you may want to perform those at the end of your leg workout, with only your Quad WM left to finish. SLDL are pretty taxing and I believe are allowed to go at the end. (Correct me if I'm wrong).

    After your first blast, take into consideration what went well and what didn't. Make notes in your book about the lift for future reference. That way, when deciding how to plan out your next blast, you'll know exactly how to lay it out.

    I may have missed a few things but looks fairly solid. Good Luck out there.

      One quick thing, rather than doing two WM's with leg press, why not do hack squats?

      Also, for more well rounded development, instead of having two decline chest movements, possibly doing flat DB presses?

      And what is the difference between wide grip pull-ups and the graviton pull-ups? If your shoulders are healthy, behind the neck lat pulldowns are a good option as are wide neutral grip lat pulldowns (I have these in the 11-15 RP range in my program). If you have a training partner rack chins are another winner (just a little tough without a partner or reliable spotter IMO).

      Overall, looks good. Blast away!

          Got it. So you are fine there. I was thinking you were just doing the same motion as a pull-up on the gravitron.

          Looks like you did your homework. :yo: Keep us updated on how things are going once you get started. DC is addicting once you start seeing those numbers go up, up and away.

            Overall looks solid. Why the emphasis on decline chest movements?

              On decline.....well, i feel im more of a delt/tri presser...so i though decline would be the best option as then my shoulders are already kind of back...?

              I could be wrong though, and im open to suggestions from anyone.

              With regards to hack squats...i dont actually have a hack squat rack at my gym as daft as that sounds!~

              Thanks for the replies though.

                  I am no expert, but I think it looks solid. Only thing that caught my attention is You have SLD, Deadlifts, Squats and Rack pulls in consecutive workouts. I would try and space them out, so You dont tax the lower back to much. However it will be impossible to keep all 4 exercises in the same blast and not do some of them in consecutive workouts. If You have a healthy back it might not be a problem.
                  Also why are You using the Seated leg curl twice?.

                    In my gym for hamstrings I only have a leg curl machine, and then i can do stiff legged.

                    I have like a leg kickback but dont think that would be suitable?
                    If not ill have to look at a sumo squat and add that in.

                    I tried workout A1 and it's bloody hard training all that in one session! lol.

                    The graviton pull ups feel awesome though!


                    Diet wise.....if people could advise..think ill do ok though.

                    Ill be getting 500g of protein roughly everyday with an additional 20g bcaa's, 10g eaa's, 10g glutamine and 5g leucine during my workout on training days.

                    Training days carbs will be quite high...about 500ish...then on non training days I was simply gonna have about 100g of carbs and thats it. Fats will be higher on non training days.

                    For example...

                    I train at 6.15pm.

                    So I would have say

                    70g protein, 80g carbs + few g's of fats from my meat etc for my first 6meals. including a pwo shake at about 7.15pm..but in my last meal ill keep it just protein and fat.

                    On a non training day only my first 2 meals will be protein and carbs...then next 5 with be protein,fat and like green veg.

                    Hoping this will keep me leaner.

                      ---I would do a sumo leg press (high and wide).

                          "never ever tried to beat the logbook"

                          Maybe you should try to do that with a simpler routine? Beating the logbook is something that you should be trying to do even if you aren't doing DC...
