    My only thought is that you might wanna do some standing calf raises too; trade 2 of the seateds, or just add em in.

    some opinions:

    im not a huge fan of leg curls unless its the lying variety. i would hit the hams with SLDL. seated calfs will hit strictly the solus of the calf muslce for a change up from seated to standing to leg press calf raise, is always good.

    on a personal level, 9 total sets for chest doesnt do it for me. I have to push that number to 12-14. (mostly pressing motion, finished up with some variation of a fly or crossovers)

    personally, i would move deads to my 2nd exercise, to get your entire back warmup thoroughly before hitting this big exercise. the wide grip or bb rows is a good canidate. everything else looking sound. Sage
