    I am lost at what your trying to do here. What are your goals and what are you doing 6 reps and then 1 for? The workout as far as exercises dont look to bad however.

    im trying to gain streght and i got the program from a book called "The New Rules of Lifting. They explian the 6 to 1 to 6 to 1 to 10-12 as somthing called wave loading to do with your nervous system and motor requirtment and the workouts are supposed to be 4 days a week some some other exercises like bulgarian split squats, lower body russian twists, romanian deadlifts and others, but i used this week to ease into the program and next week im gonna hit it all out.
