supinated lat pulls
cable rows
facepulls
cable wide grip curls 3x12-15 rpe9 1x20-30 rpe 10
cable fly 1x20-30 rpe10

leg press 4x12-15 rpe 9
RDL
Leg extension
leg curl
cable crunch 4x15-20 rpe 10

decline bp 4x12-15 rpe 10
med grip lat pulls
one arm dumbbell rows
seated overhead press
cable wide grip curls 3x12-15 rpe9 1x20-30 rpe 10
cable fly 1x20-30 rpe10

    I would switch between that and something with more weight and less reps to build size and strength as well as stay shredded. I find it works best for me but everyone's different.

    Something like that after a while will just train your muscle for endurance instead of help you grow and shred. Unless endurance is what you're after?

    Also depends on your overall size and strength goals I suppose.

    What are your goals? It seems like everything is extremely high rep.

    general hypertrophy by increased volume. Regaining weight to come to a more maintainable one. Just want to gain as much LM as possible while not putting my joints under terribly heavy weights.

    What i would personally do for that goal is vary my reps a bit. I like hitting the big moves at 4-6 or 5-7, and then hit my accessories at 6-12. And occasionally do 12-20 for things like calf raises. My reason for the power move is that it will improve the accessory moves, which should allow for more volume.

    Additionally, I would replace decline bench with regular bench. You will still be hitting the peck major muscles. Also, there is no tricep work, so I would add that to balance the bicep work.

    Also, to help with joints and overall work recovery, deload every 6-12 weeks

    All those high rep isolation sets are likely more stressful on your joints than properly performed heavy squats presses and deadlifts...
