    Because tuesday is working some muscles that just got hit the day before.
    As for rows, I'm not saying it's TOO much, just plenty of work there when things get heavy. I'm doing this myself from the "Old Grey" routine:
    Pull Ups
    Chin Ups
    Pendlays
    Front Pull Downs
    Curl Movement
    As it gets to be too much, as it will later, I'll drop off a couple things.
     
  5. Everyone is different so this workout might just be fine for you, but to me it seems like a great example of overtraining workout. Besides that it sounds to me far too complicated, too many exercises to keep track of weight increments, too long loading, racking... Is there are point to so many different exercises that I am missing?
