    I don't do dips, can't answer that.

    Only downside to front squats is that you can't load the muscles with as much weight as a back squat variation. So I wouldn't do them as the main squat...

    6-8 is fine for compounds, including RDL.

    ^ All the programs above are good. There's also RTS and BB Medicine.

    In your routine, why do RDL before conv. DL?

    I'd say using a belt is the opposite from using knee wraps, mainly regarding muscle development. Wraps give you more bounce out of the bottom of a squat, so that the equipment takes on some of the...

    Legs are 2 muscle groups (excluding calves): quads, and hams/glutes together. Knee extension (quads) involves a different movement pattern from hip extension (hams/glutes). Maybe you mean "body...

    IMO they're not useful enough for my goals (strength, hypertrophy, and health) to justify the cost. I bought wraps in 2018 and used them for about a month before going back to raw. If I could go...

    Exactly my thinking as I was reading your post. Similar to a high pin squat which strengthens your ability to hold heavy weight on your back.

    As long as you know the purpose for using wraps, then...

    It's just not a goal right now. I want a mental break from heavy pounding and grinding, and try more variety of lifts while I cut and pivot. Used to love BB rows for sure, got to 235 x 10.

    I don't intend on doing heavy BB rows, if that's what you mean. But I think back volume now is higher, or at least more consistent, than it was on the Calgary program. I intend on building up...

    407 squat
    302 bench
    452 deadlift

    Best recent lifts in pounds.

    Everyone's different, there's no official ratio. Symmetricstrength is one way to gauge balance.

    If you really want to do PPL, you could just split each day into two days. Basically cut each workout in half and spread it over two weeks instead of one week.

    As it is, it's too much volume. ...

    No problems there. Bench volume is a lot less than previously, which makes room for other lifts. Best OHP ever was 77 x 6 and 68 x 10 around Sept. 2018, so maybe I can work back up to those numbers.
