    There is NOTHING in that doc that even remotely resembles your program. There's a reason they said you should follow it to the letter.

    Definitely DO NOT Neglect your back! That will lead you to problems down the road!

    I most of the workouts from one of the pages in it :p

    Anyway, I'll add a back workout in a cardio day instead, would this help me any more to build muscle while loosing fat and keep my metabolism going?

    (I know nothing about lifting, as you can see, so I need to ask for the help).

    If I were you, I would move the triceps work (lying tricep presses and dumbell kickbacks) to your chest workout on fridays (do them last). This is because your tri's are already being worked when you do chest or shoulder work, like bench press or military press. They are a push muscle.

    Then add a couple of back routines to monday and do them first, before your bicep work. The biceps are a pull muscle and they are being utilized in your back workout.. as in seated rows or lat pulldowns.

    If you move anything to a cardio day, maybe put your ab workout there.

    You should also add more ab and calf exercises per week. Those muscles recover much quicker than any other muscle.
