First off, your shoulder approach is like mine. I never (or rarely) train rear delts with shoulders because I am a firm believer that they are worked hardest with heavy rowing - so I feel they are best worked, if at all, on back day. Mileage may vary.

Overall I think it's a solid setup.

Do your lunges work your hamstrings hard? I don't perform them so I don't know if you utilize them as a hamstring exercise.

Also, I am glad to see you're not doing 20 sets for biceps and triceps each. You get the thumbs up seal of approval for relying on pushing and pulling movements to build your arms.
