full body workout..

what do you guys think to the idea of this, i saw it in another thread, beginner/BB routines i think, and it was praised by and large. it was originally for mass, but could this type of routine be adapted for strength??

all in one session, to be completed as soon as feel fully recovered [say every 2-4 days].

overhead squats
clean and jerk/DB snatch
dips
pullups
weighted situp/side bends
grip work [will be ongoing throughout workout and recovery, days off taken as and when required]

would like a few more strength orientated peoples opinions and set/rep scheme if possible. i have ben looking for a new routine to follow for a the next 6-12 months and have posted up several 2-4 day splits but i still don't feel satisfied that they will keep me on the right track. this [at least to me] looks very promising.

thanks in advance
rob

    It seems good to me as long as you have variety. I would change it to this:

    overhead squats/back squats/front squats/good mornings/overhead squats blindfolded standing on a swiss ball (joke)
    clean and jerk/DB snatch/power snatch/snatch/power clean/snatch off box etc
    dips/DB bench/bench and its varients
    pullups/chins/sternum pull ups/row occasionally
    weighted situp/side bends/all the normal core work variants (possibly even lower back work)
    grip work [will be ongoing throughout workout and recovery, days off taken as and when required]

    volume would be dependant on intensity and excercise selection so you would have to go by your instincts

    thaks mate, i was on two minds as to include GM's instead of cleans/snatch and front squats intstead of OHsquats. but the final selection was the most efficient in terms of workinhg all at once in theminimal amount of exersizes.
    my thinking is this, if i am going to be doing 3-5exersizes on the same day and want to give it 100% all the way through then i shold keep the volume down.

    every couple of days [like afetr a cv session] i will also spend 10-15minutes doing exersizes such as one legged bodyweights squats/bridging and handstand pressups.
    thoughts?

    dude, is it me or have you been changing routines lately like some people change socks?

    Friendly advice: i know there's all this info available and all the wonderful routines to choose from, but try to give your routines time to start working. I know this is "looks who's talking" thing because i'm crap at staying in one routine, in fact, i've never stayed on one routine as long as i am now. 2 months on westside and counting, whohoo!

    Anyways, looks like a solid base, but if you have problems sticking to routines like i do, build the variation in to your routine like help said.

    it is me and you, i have posted a lot of routines recently because i am having trouble deciding which route to take. i haven't actually used any of these during this time, just been squatting once/twice a week and doing lots of running to keep the strength and fitness ticking over scince the week after christmas whilst i faff about trying to organise a new, and [hopefully] lasting routine..

    "i know there's all this info available and all the wonderful routines to choose from"

    thats the darn problem, every time i think to myself, I'VE GOT IT, AT LAST!! some bstrd gives me a better idea, or so i seem to think. and TBH, i know there is no "be-all-and-end-all" routine, but i hate varitaion* as i feel i cannot track my progress very well.
    *i think the ideal is to stick to something until you plateu, then change it, rather than changing all the time.

    but thanks anyways. i have about 4 routines all very different to choose from, so i'll consider carefully over the coming week [whilst keeping up the squats and running] and post the final draft/edit.

    thanks to all
