    Your program looks pretty comprehensive!!! I think the consistent eating is one of the hardest disciplines for people.

    Your workout covers a lot...but I will leave that for other experts here. I just wonder about the Smith Squats. Let's see what others say.

    I am glad you are here and even more so that you are starting this log. I think if you persevere you will find you are well supported here by a lot of good and very generous people.

    Welcome!!!

    Wondering the same. That's a ton of exercises and a lot of redundancy

    Only other thing that jumps out at me is that you might find there are better results if you depend a little less on whey shakes

    Hi and thank you to all .

    I can tell you guys that I'm currently working on strength ATM so my sets are quite short. For each workout I'tll be between 2-3 sets + 3-4 repetitions each. Once I've managed my strength I will begin to break down my workouts quite a lot.
    I'm also at that stage where I'm adding that extra body fat so their is quite a bit of more work needed.
    Once again if you have anything you'd like to share with me I would really appreciate that
    Thanks.

    Hey sounds good :) keep pushing . The one thing that came to mind from your OP was that you were doing to many exercises for each body part . The majority of people I have trained with over the years would do say 4-5 exercises per body part . So that's why the question about sets and reps .But with low reps I can see were your going .
    And as we say "if it's working its all good " don't be afraid to change things around if it stops working .

    Good luck all the best .

    Hmmm, even so, you're averaging 50 sets for shoulders alone. That's insane

    If your goal is strength, I would suggest changing your training.

    If you're focused on strength atm do large compound exercises: squats, deaddlift, overhead presses, bench presses. Whey protein should supplement and not be a main part of your diet. dialling in your diet is more important than AAS or training IMO.
