How long have you been lifting?
How old are you?
Where did you get this routine from?
What type of medication are you on?
Statement from GL.
The person who should be using this routine is already on a magazine cover at a store near you. Unless you are that person, then I suggest you take a deep breath and re-think what your doing.
Wednesdays session is especially amusing. I already know who you are from this routine alone. 20 sets for arms, 12 for legs. Let me know when you are ready to talk about doing something appropriate.

The fact that nothing else is just screaming out at you about how wrong this program is means you have a lot to learn about, quantity versus quality.
You should be reading most of the current magazines you pick up just like you watch Pro wrestling. For entertainment purposes only, don't try this at home!

Not to be harsh but..
No deadlifts? Well i would not do that routine, ever. It actually wont do much to improve your physique. Read up on the basics of strengthtraining a bit, lots of good articles here at mab and on other sites. Reflect over your goals, where you are now and where you want to be in one year, and ask around here - lots of competence gathered at MAB.

Skullcrushers 3 working sets at 8 - 10 reps
2 days off and repeat
Here is my thinking behind all of this:
1) You're a beginner so these are all the basic movements that will help you get started.
2) You need to focus on the compound movements (i.e. squats, bench press, shoulder press, and deadlifts) all the other cable movements are irrelevant for you right now until you get the hang of the basics. I still hardly use cable movements.
3) You have to do more sets on legs. They're the largest muscle group in your body. Neglecting them is like neglecting half of your body.
4) You don't need 8 exercises and 20 sets for arms. Arms don't require as much work as the other parts of your body. If you think about it, your biceps get worked on your back day, and triceps get worked on your shoulder and chest day. So only doing the basic arm movements for a few sets, and really busting it on every set should be enough to destroy your arms (in a good way).
Also, you don't necessarily have to always do 8-10 reps. It can really be whatever you want.
I hope this helped.

Even Andy's Program is a bit much at this point.
You really only need to do a few moves to create some growth. Stimulate, not anhiliate is the thing to do.
There are already lots of very good programs to that have been written by people who know what they are doing.
Go read the Casey Butt article, The rules to productive weightlifting, in the articles section. This will give you some very good advice about how to approach a program.
You can build a seriously strong, big body, using about 8-10 movements. Using the right moves in the right sequence, and pushing for progression of weight is what you need.
A basic program like this works very well.
BB bent rows 5x5-8
Behind neck press 5x5-8
Bench Press 5x5-8
BB calf raise 5x5-8
You could do this routine 3x a week and grow. You could switch a few moves around for the Wednesday workout and do this as written on Mondays and Fridays, with Wednesday being a light day regardless if you swapped a few moves around.
Here's an idea for an alternate Wednesday session.
Front squats 5x5-8
Dumbell rows 5x5-8
DB presses 5x5-8
DB bench press 5x5-8
Work hard at this, eat smart, and you will grow.
