    Exclamation please critique my upper lower split


    The program is a basic upper and lower split with no training on consecutive days.
    1 warmup set on each exercise followed by 2 work sets. Only 6 exercises per workout which means 12 work sets in each workout

    due to the fact that i'm used to a 5 day body part split routine, i'm havin a hard time fitting so many upper body muscles in just 2 days
    i'm VERY open to suggestions
    i was actually thinking of fitting a few upper body movements into the leg days seeing as theres room in each one


    Upper 1
    elbow in dumbell row
    elbow out dumbell row
    Individual preacher curl
    Incline smith
    Tricep extension
    Hang clean and press

    Lower 1 +abs
    Power squat
    pullovers
    Sitting calf raises
    Sitting leg curl

    Upper 2
    Rack deadlift
    Bent over barbell row
    Lat extension
    Seated dumbbell cleans
    Flat dumbbell press
    Pronated forearm curl

    Lower 2 +abs
    Leg press
    lunges
    leg press calf raises
    Snatch grip or Romanian deadlift

    i included pullovers on leg day because i'm trying breathing squats and pullovers. sry if the names are a lil weird.

    Im more of a 5 days a week kind of guy, i would never be able to put full intensity into such a wide variety of muscles.

    Aside from that, i would do chest first then back in your split. I find when my back is fatigued, my chest workouts suffer.
