    that is how i would set it up for a 3-day split, and i did it using the exercises u put in that u wanted, but i left out some that you should have on ur deadlift day. put in barbell bent over rows and either stiff-legged deadlifts or romanian deadlifts for the hams. also, instead of crunches, do situps and put those somewhere in ur routine. also why are u doing so many reps? cut the reps on everything to 12 or less and on your main exercises like bench, squat and deadlift - do those in 3-5 reps or lower when u get comfortable with the movements. also, when i put days 1,2,3, i dont mean in a row. u could set it up something like mon, wed, fri

    meh...mediocre, imo

    what are your goals?

    off the bat, i dont like fly's, kickbacks, your ab stuff, your pull day, leg curls, and the calf raises. also, your rep range is too high for S&P, looks more for hypertrophy.

    read the stickies.

    Agree with colinm. Looks like a beginner's bodybuilding routine. Stick with the big lifts, and put some weight on the bar.

    Far too much isolation, crappy rep scheme and Bizarro's suggestion wasn't a whole lot better (no rows\chin-ups? Plus you kept too many of the crappy isolation movements).

    Read the stickies and learn what's what, then come back with a revised routine.

    I'm closing this. Why? cause MMA fun has done this many many times, both asking for a routine and for critique. by this point he knows what will be said of his routine, his bullshit rep scheme, his horse shit isolation exercises, and his appearent inability to learn.
