new routine idea, plz critique

I am going for size/str and thought that I would try a routine something like the following, using as many closed chain exercises that I could, with some odd object and oly lifting thrown in. Tell me what you think.

Weighted Press Ups (dips still bother my chest, taking it easy on them)
ab work

weighted chins

handstand press ups
ab work

sandbag clean and press
sandbag over shoulder carry
hold and carry

hows that look?

    good base. Are you planning to cover all aspects of grip work in one go though? I've found that pretty much impossible unless grip is all i will do during that day.

    How about splitting things like static holds or farmers walks (if it would work your grip the most) to one day, wrist specific things to another and then a session for thick object/plate pinches and so on?
