Just a key point...
....make sure that you really focus on the eccentric/concentric portion of all of your lifts/movements (..mind/muscle connection). I would personally extend the reps on movements such as the reverse cable flies, lat pull downs, pec deck/low cables, etc. simply for the aesthetic, muscle building benefits. For movements like those I typically stay in the 10-12 rep range while increasing weight incrementally. Have at it, and let us know how it goes.
