should i mix it up? i got decent results last time, what do you think? if i mixed it up, how would i?

I think, this cycle you should try Rest Pause training. I know I'm telling everyone this, but it's worth giving a go, especially on the split that you have. Basically I want you to write up your planned workout, and I'll help modify it so that you can get it going the rest pause way.

i do traps with shoulders sorry forgot to put that in. i do biceps on whatever day im not busy on. calfs i will start to do on squat day. is hamstring really necessary since i do squats and deadlifts?

for this...

I like this answer:

Not that my opinion is backed up by any research/qualifications, but I would say hamstrings require just as much attention as your quads do. Squats and deadlift use quads primarily, hamstrings are used more for balance. Something like a stiff leg dead lift will focus primarily on hamstrings, with some impact on lower back as well. Give it a shot, you might like it :)

Always remember the theory of reciprocals (made that phrase up :P)
If you work chest, you must do back
If you work biceps, you must work triceps
If you work abs, you must work lower back
Similarly, if you work quads, you must work hamstrings


however, I would add, instead of Stiff Legs, Search (ON THIS SITE), for Romanian Deadlift RDL which is pretty much the same thing

Your body is an amazing machine, it has mastered how to adapt to the most strenuous of conditions over the course of evolution so far. So if you keep doing the same workout, over a period of time you will hit a plateau and stop seeing any results/progress. Mixing it up is our clever way of keeping the body guessing about what will come next ;) and hence keep seeing a progression in strength and muscle mass :D
