    Anyway, so I felt like using the SSB my current gym has and did a 6-min squat session with it (including rest time):

    135x5, 185x3, 225x3, 275x3, 315x2, 275x5

    Hopped on a horizontal leg press,...

    If I were programming the perfect shoulder day, it would start with a seated press with a barbell or smith machine, without back support.

    Then I’d hit them with incline DB front raises, cable...

    For an intermediate lifter, drop sets should be used sparingly.

    For a novice, I don’t program them at all.

    Your already doing 1-2 sets of other curls, the bicep is a SMALL easily pissed off muscle. Hit it with a few intense sets and you’re obvious desire for “da pump” would dissipate. Instead of worrying...

    YES!!

    For someone who had to crumple to get into a “good” position to do deadlifts, like me, the trap bar has been a godsend.

    I use it for deads, RDLs, SLDLs and Dorian deadlifts (a personal...

    That isn’t a PPL though (and PPLs suck anyway)

    More like an upper/upper/lower, which is fine but I’d do chest and back, then legs, then shoulders and arms.

    I have a few bolts I bought from a hardware store that serve as extender pins. Like $1.97 a piece. I believe one is 3/8” and the other is 5/16”, both 6” long.

    I just put them back in my bag when I’m done with them. Between sets I just hang them on a weight peg or something. No way I’m wearing them sweaty ass things longer than I...

    Gonna have to disagree with this. For a multitude of reasons.

    If his goal is to pack on muscle, then isolations have their place in a routine to hit muscles not worked well by compounds.

    Simple really, add rear delts to upper days, and do arms on lower days. Don’t blow your load on arm work, 1 Tricep compound, 1 Tricep isolation and 1-2 bicep isolations should be sufficient.

    Once you get past newbie gains, deadlifts aren’t gonna do much for your back.
