    Default Does this routine look OK?

    Hi everyone

    I'm coming off a cut, and I want to re-boost my workouts while I begin to bulk. I'm trying to figure out the smartest way to train. I've been lifting a few years now - diet hasn't always been that great (not eating enough, flip flopping between bulking and cutting due to indecisiveness). I'm probably still a beginner. I'm still not super strong, but according to beginner/intermediate strength charts, i'm at the top level of a beginner's 1RM for my weight.

    Here's what I've been doing. I start a new weight with around 6 reps per set, and work up to 8-10 depending on the lift, then bump up the weight 5 lbs or so. I perform each lift for 3 sets each, with 1 min resting between. I performed this during my cut and seemed to retain most of my strength, though it has dropped slightly.

    Day 1: PUSH
    Squat
    Bench
    Incline DB press
    calf raise
    cable flies
    OHP
    tricep work

    Day 2: PULL
    Lat pull downs
    Cable rows
    stiff leg DL (still super light on this, need to work on flexibility)
    one arm DB row
    Shrugs
    Bicep work
    abs

    Day 3: REST

    Day 4: PUSH
    Squat
    Incline BB press
    calf raise
    db bench press
    cable flies
    seated db overhead press
    tricep work

    Day 5: PULL
    Deadlift
    Cable row
    leg curl
    tbar row
    bicep work
    abs

    Day 6: REST


    Day 7: REST


    Should I stick with this style of routine or is it smarter to move to something like 5/3/1 BBB or AllPros? (I'm not particularly interested in SS). Just want to know if i'm training smartly enough with this layout.

    Thank you!

    It seems to be a pretty good routine
