    Hi this is my routine looking for some constructive critisism/pointers, its two sessions each repeated twice over an 8 day split. I have a rotator cuff injury hence no bench or millitary press, I also do some ab, cardio and rehab for my shoulder on days off.

    Session 1
    squats 5x5
    B.O rows 5x5
    Tyre flips and sled work
    good morning 5x5
    abs

    Session 2
    deads 5x5
    weighted pull ups 5xmax
    weighted dips 5xmax
    floor press 5x5
    heavy barbell curls 5x5

    Cheers

    Probably a bad move to do good mornings after tire flips and sled work. tire flips and sledwork will wear you out. You don't necessarily have to do 5X5s for everything either.

    I will agree with Chase. Move one of the pressing movements to day 1. And don't worry about doing curls for 5x5. Just grab some dumbells and do 3 sets for higher reps. Do tire flips and sleds at the end of the workout, too.

    My thought would be:

    Session 1
    Squats 5x5
    Good Morning
    Floor press
    Weighted pull-ups

    Tyre flips and sled work


    Session 2
    Deads 5x5
    BO Row
    Weighted dips
    Curls/whatever arm work

    Abs

    I like donuts change to the routine, you could even switch the weighted dips with the weighted pull-ups to assist the floor press.
