    I guarantee you overtrain within 2 weeks...

    why the double chest workout on Monday? As if your chest needs that much volume...

    what makes you obssesed with this exercise selection. This looks very much like the crap from the Arnold Encyclopaedia of Overtraining Manual.

    Thats about 30 sets per workout. IMO... doing that many sets requlires a great knowledge of ones own body, and personally, I never think anyone needs that high amount of volume.

    Judging from your lifts, and not trying to be a dick at all, but your still in the novice stages of your bodybuilding, and I believe for the first year or two especially, you routine should be very basic, simple, and heavy with moderate to low volume (I only do a TOTAL of 4 sets per bodypart and Im doing quite well).

    The first guy was joking, I'm not sure about kenwood?

    Edit: Kenwood was the first guy, my bad.
