Man,

That is a solid routine. However, here is the big rub.... Nutrition and excess calories. If both aren't good then it won't be very beneficial. I have been victim of dietary constraints while deployed on active duty so that my food choices and caloric intake just weren't that condusive fore muscle building.

It's a pretty solid foundation for a routine although the volume is pretty high. He's going to have to eat like an animal and sleep like a baby if he wants to keep up with that program.

If anything I would be more selective with the accessories.

Looks good, but like the others said, nutrition and rest are what it will come down to.
