    Don't do curls and don't do kickbacks.

    Look at my routine.
    I know everything.

    This is just me, but I'd say it sucks. You're in the gym 6 days a week (way too much); there's leg curls, side raises and kick backs; and and you've got stuff like squats the day after deads (you're posterior chain is heavily loaded by both and will need way moree time to recover). I'd reccomend rereading Carnal's treatise (you have read it have'nt you?) and following a similar routine with a pull/push/squat split done on Mon/Weds/Fri. As a fairly inexperienced lifter you should be in the gym only three days a week.

    Here's two excerpts from Carnal's work The first shows why I dislike your routine and the second is an example workout:
