    i think u shoudl do deadlifts before chins and then do bent over rows...i wouldnt do an isolation for the biceps, but if its working for u then keep it....i would also do weighted dips on ur chest day after st. shoulder press...i would also keep ur bench day as a day 2...so that u can have as much time possible to recover from deads and squats in between

    Have a look off that

    Dips are a good exercise, your probably doing them incorrectly if you cannot feel it.

    I assume you were talking about a different type of cycle.
