    That is a old style strength routine, works pretty well but I would switch Fri. with Sat.
    One day rest from shoulders/tris to chest isnt enough
    also from legs to deads,you need at least 2 days in between.
    I wouldnt go more than 12 wks. either.

    looks pretty interesting as far as the rest and workout order is concerned

    switching up the frequency/weight ought to provide your body enough incentive to grow again if you're in a slump

    of course the only way to find out how well it works is to try it, so make sure you document it and post the results for us with pictures
