    handstand pushups-3x4...thats about all i can get
    weighted dips-3x8,8,6
    weighted pullups regular grip-3x4
    weighted pullups reverse grip-2x4,3
    DB rows-3x6
    oblique work-6x8-12

    I agree. You might also take a look at the articles I posted here by Casey Butt. I think it will be well worth the time you invest. Print them out and read them.

    Training Related I - Basic Concepts:

    Training Related - Making A Strength/Size Routine:

    Casey wrote at times for Hardgainer magazine and focused on the science of getting muscles to grow with consistent gains particularly for the natural bodybuilder. From his articles you'll realize that you are not giving your central nervous system time to recuperate.

    You will find that you have touched on a couple of things that are very good - deep stretch in those exercises and compound movements. The articles will help you put together a good training regimen and allow you to realize when you are overtraining. But most of all they will help you grow and avoid stagnation.
