hey i dont want to be insulting but why do you squat and deadlift so little compared to your bench press? Is that seriously how you're built?

BTW not a bad routine for a new guy if you are one, if you have a year or two under you try westside

actually thats a lot of bicep work, you dont need any for powerlifting, you might be able to cut down a bit on the volume overall as well.

I do the same amount of excersises on everything. When there are two excersises under one number, I alternate every week. Like yesterday, I did leg extensions, and next monday I will Leg presses. I do the same amount of work with each lift.
