No offense, but this is kind of a mess. Poorly balanced, questionable exercise choices, and more volume than you probably need. Have you read either of the stickies? -3X

That is some crazy volume you got there. The trick with PPL or any high frequency routines is to keep it simple. Don't run this routine at all.
Choose something already out there OR see the Routine design for dummies thread OR search the forum and pick something more sensible.
If a routine requires you to do 20 sets of curls in a week, definitely don't choose it

You think so?
I try to structure it for on the pulling days I have two vertical pulls and two horizontal pulls
The two pushing days I incorporated for chest a flat press,an incline press and a fly
And for shoulders a anterior delt, medial delt, and rear delt exercise.
And for legs I tried to incorporate an even amount of quad and hamstring training.
Maybe I could lower the curls too lol.

*lateral delt. There's no such thing as a medial delt.

And yes, I wouldn't advise the above routine for the reasons listed as well as a few others in the Routine Design for Dummies thread. -3X
