that looks like a pretty good workout, I'd do leg extensions first if I were you, just to get the blood pumping and try to kick your ass on the squats too, I usually do 6 sets 20, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6 moving up in weight

Also, I am taking:
Pre workout: Creatine Monohydrate & Beta Alanine
Intra workout: Xtend
Post Workout: Whey Shake
Before Bed: Casein Shake
Anyone have any suggestions about my routine or supplements, or does it look all good? Any help is appreciated.

IMO i would do my back workout before my biceps workout that way i could lift the most amount of weight. kind of like how you have chest/tris set up. If you are wanting to pre-exhaust muscles, i would suggest doing dumbell pullovers at the beginning of the workout. I get a NICE pump when i do this and i dont have to use as much weight on my other lifts and i also get more out of my back workout

Yeah, I just recently started doing my back workout before my biceps, just never changed the order in the notepad where I typed that up, lol. Ill try doing the dumbell pullovers first thing this week. Thanks for the tip.

no prob! if you have a nautulus pull over those are the best but i have never seen a gym with one ha!

Cosign Rocket. Routine looks similiar to my old one. The only thing I would change is swapping out dips for skull crushers. I've found sc's to pack on the most mass when training the tricep.

Yeah I throw in skull crushers every now and then but cant do them too often because it kills my elbows because I have tendonitis in them.

One more question:
I weigh about 160 right now, would it be possible to get up to 175 by June with the supplements im taking right now, or should I add in something? Diet is in check so no changes needed there, just wondering if it would be possible.
*Also if this helps im 5'10 and my body type is ectomorph.

Man if you truly push yourself to the limits you can do it! I wouldn't rely on supplements to get your weight up bro, food will take care of that much more effectively.
Cosign on the elbows, I know it can be a bitch sometimes.

Alright Hawaiin, thanks, Ill try to change diet and routine up and see what works best, and stick with the supplements I have.

Thinking of supplements: The first 6 months i worked out (when i first got into lifting) I was taking essentially the entire line of muscletech products and i think i gained like 3 lbs. I had no idea about diet or anything. When i figured out that diet was most important, i gained like 20lbs of LEAN muscle in a year without any supplements haha. being young is SWEET
