Five minutes rest is fine. Most important is that you can perform a quality set.

You won't lose arm size, so no adjustment required.
Thanks

What kind of abs would you add in the routine I've mentionned ? (exercise / sets / day ?)

Add it to your lower day. Personally, I only do about 3 sets.

The exercise doesn't matter that much. You can perform (weighted) crunches the first lower day, and train the obliques the other lower day.

Ok, I forgot to ask rep range for the exercise, and what do you suggest for obliques ? I used to do side bent with cable (in a far far away past) but didn't feel it very efficient even with a lot of weight.

Somewhere between 6 and 15 reps. I use 3 reps for 10-15 reps, but if you want the best of both worlds you can perform 2 sets within the 6-8 range and 2 sets within the 12-15 range.

Or pyramid down...

Or whatever you like...

It's not that important.

Ok, nearly perfect, and for the rep range I told in my workout for face pull and lateral raises (respectively 3x8-12 and 3x12-20) is it ok for you ? or would you take another one ?

Side delts are hardly worked, so I would use 3-4 sets for 8-12 reps. Again, you can use 2 'heavy' sets and 2 'light' sets if you'd like.

Face pulls is just a secondary exercise and must be treated as such. GBR is pretty clear on that: 2-3 sets of 12-15 reps.

Ok and you would still keep the order I mentionned with these ranges ?
(also you did not answer for the oblique exercise )

I'm sorry I tend to overcomplicate anything but I feel like I've lost a large amount of time with my old bro split, want to get things done right now

I'm doing my last week of PHAT, next I'll begin the GBR.

This weeks strength exercises stats :
monday upper
pendlay row 90kg -> 5-5-5
bench press 100kg -> 5-4-3
tuesday
deadlift 150kg -> 4-3-3

I plan to start the GBR with these stats for first 3 weeks : (tried some calculations with the 80-85% & 90-95% for weeks 1 & 2 but I'm not used to do 6-8 rep range so.. here I'll try )

Lower 1
deadlift 3x5 w1 125kg w2 140kg w3 150kg
leg press 4x6-8 w1 140kg w2 160kg w3 170kg

Upper 1
bench press 4x6-8 w1 70kg w2 80kg w3 90kg
bent over row 4x6-8 w1 65kg w2 72.5 w3 80kg

Lower 2
squat 4x6-8 w1 115kg w2 130kg w3 140kg
sldl 4x6-8 w1 80kg w2 90kg w3 100kg

Upper 2
inclined 4x6-8 w1 65kg w2 72.5kg w3 80kg
pullups 4x6-8 w1 0kg w2 5kg w3 10kg

I hope everything will work fine, also, I switched benchpress and bent over row of day 2 by weighted dips and seated cable row (with neutral grip).

I will inform about the progress

Ok I did the first two days of the GBR as followed :

Monday :
Deadlift @120kg 5-5-5
Leg press @140kg 8-8-8-8
Leg curl @ 59kg 12-12-12
Leg ext @ 41kg 12-12-12 (leg by leg)
Calf raises@ 75kg 8-8-8-8
seated calf@ 25kg 12-12-12
no time for abs :/

Tuesday:
Flat bench @70kg 8-8-8-8
Bent over row @65kg 8-8-8-8
OH press @35kg 12-12-12
chinups @0kg 12-7-6
lateral raises @10kg 12-12-10
face pull @23kg 15-15-15
skullcrushers @21kg 15-15
Ez bar curl @21kg 15-12

The weight were mostly tooo light because I wanted to do a "first cycle" beginning with only 80% of the weight next week I'll do 90-95% and following one 100%.

Two questions regarding the results :
1) Should I keep chinups as I was not in the range at all (supposed to be 10-12 I made 12-7-6) or should I go on pulldown with supination grip ?

2) Can I increase the weights when the first set is ok and the following ones are in the range (even if not the upper limit) ?
