death, can you list your stats, and what your goals are? Its much easier to advise on a routine if we have that info.

i have done 5x5 for 4 weeks and dfht for another 4 weeks
as you write here in the forum,im 1.80 meters tall and 92 kg

I haven't trained for mass in a long time, but for what it is worth, after pushing yourself for 4 weeks on a 5x5 for strength, then dfht for another 4 weeks, thats 2 straight months of pushing hard.

May be a good time to back off a little, drop your weights down for 2 weeks or so.

as far as the routine, it looks to me like there is a whole lot of volume, and overlap. for instance on day one you have 3 chest movements, the first of which is flat bench for 5x5. Day 2 you are starting with shoulder press 5x5. You will be hitting both chest and shoulders two days in a row (each of those movements works both). I would switch some of that up, but that is just my opinion.

for 2 weels the sets will be 3x5 with lower weight

I am more of a keep it simple kind of guy, but that looks a lot like some of the splits I used to do, that had worked for me in the past.

dropping the volume, and weight for 2 weeks will be key, good luck and keep us posted.
