A very smart guy I met here made this for me ,but others tell me it's too much for me ,and I think the guy who made it thought I was more advanced. I'm 6'3'' about 185 with under a year of weight lifting under my belt.. Please tell me what I need to change. I don't think im giving my muscles time to repair..

1. why 2 minute rest time? unless you are squatting or going for personal best, keep it at 20 - 30 seconds between sets
2. shouldnt be hitting any bodypart more than once a week, unles you are juicing of course. instead do chest/tris, back/bi's, and legs all once a week. so 3 workouts. use all the exercises he gave you but switch them with each other every week.
3. space it out more so you can recover better. monday: chest/tris, wed: legs, friday: back/bis
3. skull crushers. I personally dont do those they make my elbows hurt and feel weird. you can hit your tris very well with close grip bench. try using the EZ curl bar and a spotter. also you can do a variety exercises with rope for tris
4. at your level it will probably be difficult to do weighed dips/pullups. start doing as many as you can with bodyweight and build up from there.

Yes your right I can't do weighted dips or pushups yet ,and I kinda like skullcrushers. Oh and also I do not have a spotter. I have my own set up at my house so it's all on me. The reason I keep it at 2 minutes rest time is because I am trying to build strength/mass more than I am trying to build mass/strength. I don't want to be one of those guys who are rock solid, big as a house benching 225...

add an extra off day or two, instead of having the rotation be 7 days with 2 days off, make it 8 or 9 days with 3 or 4 days off. I work out every other day.

well that all depends on how long you spend actually lifting. hypertrophy is maximized using a 1:1 work - rest ratio (meaning you rest for same amt of seconds that you lift).
So if your sets are 60-90 seconds then that is correct. I do mostly circuit training and very short rest periods for mma. However if you are going for strength, rest periods should be increased to 3 to 5 minutes to allow full phos****en recovery before the next set. Those rest periods + heavy training loads also = higher testosterone output.

Try switching up you rep range throughout your workout (e.g. 3-5 for you first lift and 8-12 thereafter).

Bro thats a great workout for someone with your level of experience. The only thing I would do is maybe add the shoulders to the chest/tris and do traps with back. But thats just me and I like to load up on exercises. Also try deadlifts, there are many tutorials on here and other sites about how to do them right. You can do deads either with back or legs, I usually do them after squats but its up to you. Try adding some more ab exercises, lateral leg raises hanging from a bar, pike ups, etc.
So in terms of rest time, keep it at a 1:1 ratio. So if you are doing a set for 40 seconds, then rest for the same amount. You'll be able to tell after a couple workouts what that time should be. This is a good start and you will gain plenty of strength, believe me. After a while you can experiment with that and change it up. Good job putting this together!
