I'd say it's too much, yes. You are being way too clinical in dividing up the muscle groups and wanting to include as many exercises as possible into each routine.

If a body part split is your thing, check out my 4 day routine. It's in my signature.

But if you'd like a regimen that's going to generate real gains for someone like yourself, I suggest you scrap this approach and adopt a 3 day full body routine.

And as for your cardio: 5-10 minutes low intensity pre-workout and 5-10 minutes low intensity post-workout is the maximum I would recommend for you. You are having trouble gaining mass. More cardio is a bad thing.

Besides, if you aren't feeling drained and weak after your routine, you aren't going hard enough.
