    What are your goals? Critiquing a workout programme without knowing that is like reviewing a book that you haven't read.

          How old are you? If you are young just about anything will put on mass initially as long as you eat enough. At some point though you are going to want to get more efficient and spend a bit more time out enjoying life than in the gym

                  It sounds like a good starting point, I think your rep counts may be too high (going above 12 reps sounds like you might as well just up the weight and keep the reps at or under 10). Do it for a few months and see where it takes you, as long as you stick with it, it sounds like it should yield good results.

                    3 months I would go back to basics with Starting Strength or StrongLifts - focus on the big compound movements.

                        Start easy and work your way up. Ignoring these is silly if you have access to barbells which you clearly do. You don't have to deadlift more than once per week and squat 2x per week.

                          All the more reason to do them. As iniQuity says start slow and build your strength.

                            This means you need to do more of them. Deload, (back to the bar is best) and work your way back up. Every single respectable lifter/coach/trainer will tell you that squats and deadlifts are mandatory for beginner lifting programs (and intermediate and advanced, too, I bet). Leg press isn't going to do quite the same thing that squats do, and I think you know this. Don't cheat yourself.

                            I've been doing Stronglifts for about 6 months, though mostly only twice a week. I'm almost at 1.5x bodyweight on squats (Squatted 230 last week). There's nothing that makes me feel good like hitting a set of squats.

                            I hate overhead press, but that's mostly because I suck at it (~110lbs right now). Which is why I do it.

                            Work on your weaknesses.
