    not that i'm an expert on such things, but if i was doing that kind of split, i'd look into DC training, which i'm not very familiar with or i'd explain it better.

    Will usually be mon, wed, fri and sat. And yeah i need to get some size back in my legs. The idea is to incorporate some high rep training/recovery with some strength/hypertrophy each once a week, then after 6 weeks just change the exercises around as my routine has been pretty much the same for the past 3 years doing a 4 day body part split.

    I like it, should be good except you are neglecting your posterior.
