Thoughts?


That sounds like a very good routine to me. Simple and basic. It's not so much that it will run you into the ground, so you can crank up the intensity without killing yourself for the rest of the day. You can knock it out pretty quickly, and it hits most everything that needs to be hit.
I feel that compound exercises are way superior to isolation exercises. You're getting more bang for the buck, so to speak, because they incorporate more muscle groups per exercise, plus other muscles come into play for balancing, especially in the lower body exercises.
I like it.
