    take your delts and arms day and move them over to your chest (delts and triceps) and back (biceps) day...and make a push pull routine out of it. We consider the incline press to be a vertical movement (like the shoulder press) and it uses a lot of anterior delt, so you use one or the other for that. mach up the rows to the pulls. Ditch the leg extensions in favor of some single leg work (lunges, step ups, etc..). I don't like the upright rows so I would drop them.

    So, the workout may look like this now:

    day1- Push
    Bench press
    Overhead DB press
    DB fly
    Lateral raises (i prefer scaption raises, but if these don't agravate your shoulder then it is cool)
    triceps pressdown

    Day2- lower
    squat
    sldl
    lunge
    leg curl
    calves

    day3- pull
    Bent over row (I like DB rows over the bent over row personally)
    chin ups or pull downs
    face pulls or cable rows
    reverse cable flyes (or something for the scapular retractors)
    Biceps curls

    Looks like P pointed you in the right direction. Give it a whirl for a couple of months then switch it.

    no, you aren't a pussy.

    What you might want to do is try alternating which press you start with each week. Or, change the loading parameter......ie, heavy tension work on the bench (3 sets x 5-8 reps) and lighter, more metabolic work on the shoulders (3 sets x 10-12 reps). Do that for 3-4 weeks, then switch.

    Make sense?

    I think the original program is fine, its in perfect synch with cowpimps sticky pretty much and good for someone getting into heavy lifting for the first time

    Well, the sticky is just a general guideline. It helps people put together something coherent so we aren't just totally rewriting a program when they post it up here. I think P-funk's suggestsions are good.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
