    critique my routine...


    Any advice on my diet, routine, or anything else you see here would be awesome...Thanks!

    Stats:

    24 yrs old, 5’9’’, 180 lbs, approx 10 % body fat (need to measure this again soon), training hard for 2 yrs, but still consider myself a noob. My current schedule has me training about 2 hrs after dinner in the evenings.
    Diet:
    I’m lacking here. I don’t track it as closely as I need to. I eat “clean” but I’m not tracking my carbs. I eat 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight, but want to increase this to 1.5 or 2 g. I try to not go long periods of time without eating, but my bigger meals are lunch and dinner.
    Supplements:
    Currently on SWOLE stack – 2 Testopro and stoked with breakfast and again with dinner. 2 glycobol 20 min before lunch and again before dinner.
    Daily: Multi, fish oil, vit c, garlic, ZMA, Casein (before bed)
    Preworkout: (30 minutes prior) waxy maize, arginie & ornithine, citrulline mallate, taurine, L-carnitine, L-glutamine, BCAA (Leucine 4:11), creatine mono, beta alanine
    One scoop of whey isolate (15 minutes prior)
    Postworkout: (immediately after) waxy maize, l-glutamine, BCAA (Leucine 4:11), creatine mono.
    Two scoops whey isolate (30 minutes after workout)

    Monday--Chest & Back (7-9 rep range)

    Superset 1 -- X3

    Pull ups (wide grip)
    Dumbell Bench Press

    Superset 2 -- X3

    Finish off with some fast pushups or dips and a few more pullups until I burn out.

    Squat-- X3

    Standing Calf raises --X3
    barbell Deadlifts--X3

    Friday--Arms & Shoulders (7-10 rep range)

    yeah supersets need only be used a little, using them for the majority of your workout can be counterproductive if you are looking for strength or maximum hypertrophy.if you are looking to tone up and keep cardiovascular systems in shape, this would be an option, but from your rep range it doesnt seem like thats what your training for. I'd rest a minute between each set at least.

    Thanks for advice dudes.

    I just started this split, and was thinking the supersets would be good to get the blood flowing, especially since this is an antagonistic split for the most part. Basically, I've heard supersets like this will give you a great pump. But if it's counter productive to gaining some lean mass, I'm out.

    Even though it's an antagonistic split i'm using, do you still think I should be resting between Pullups / bench for example on my Monday workout.

    My main goals is to gain some very lean muscle mass.

    FYI for your diet, if you seem like you cant eat clean and get enough protien you can cheat on the diet eat decent food but lift heavier do a bit more cardio.. but dont superset everything make sure you have compounds lifts bench squat deads hell do that and u can superset stuff after the big lifts.
