Looks like a solid routine. Are you creating this yourself or following a workout plan of some sort? Do you have a plan for increasing weights as you go?

@Dylan: It's a routine called StrongLifts 5x5, which focuses on compounds. I seem to be having decent results so far, putting on some of that truant leg muscle.

I try to increase 5 lbs (2.5 each) each time I hit the gym.

Stats:
Squats: 160 (57.5)
Bench: 145 (50)
Deadlifts: same
Overhead press: 80 (17.5)
Barbell row: 95 (25)
