Looking good. You do hit the biceps with two exercises and the triceps with only one so you may want to change that. It probably won't make too much of a difference tho.

i know but triceps is also hit on military press & dips &bench.

ok and i wonder if i can replace deadlift with sumo deadlift (ive got short arms and conventional deadlift is really pain in ass). and also on friday rdl with leg curls (4x6-8)?

And biceps are hit with pullups & bentover db rows. I'm just saying the balance is a little off because the triceps are secondary muscles used in military press & dips & bench. Since you already do deadlifts, or sumo deadlifts, you can save your back from potential injuries by switching to leg curls.

yes, i know what you mean. but I feel that biceps isnt *as much* contracted during pullups and rows as triceps during bench press, dips and military press (especially strict form, elbows close to each other). But yeah, i got what you mean. There is a lot of sense in it. Maybe ill incorporate another triceps exercise in superset with extenions. what do you think? but i dont have pulldown... i like bench dips, but dont know if 2 types of dips wouldnt be too much for one workout

I don't do hanging dips anymore. After several shoulder surgeries I just don't feel comfortable doing them. But I do bench dips after triceps extensions. Doing 3X25 I get more out of it than I ever did doing weighted dips. And believe me, I use to hang a BUTT LOAD of plates when doing them! Try moving your bench dips after your tricep extensions. They are higher rep and will give you a burn you wont believe..I think you'll like it.
Also, since you are supersetting those dips with flyes and flyes don't really incorporate your tris as much as benching and military presses do, you might find you don't feel as gassed when you start doing military presses and can work with heavier weights. You can lower the number of sets when doing your bench dips since you are bulking. But I promise you that doing them right after doing your extensions will literally kick your ass!

thanks for your input. i know what bench dips (high rep) are for tris incredible burn. but i want to still do these chest dips (not so wide grip) as even weighted they dont bother my shoulders for now and i feel good stretch in chest. and as you said supersetting them with flyes may be beneficial because my triceps get some rest before military press. and also i feel great burn when doing dips & flyes together. for me very good combo.
