Default No time for 3 days per week anymore.

So I am in university now,studying human physiology,strength training,nevromuscular connection and all that stuff that eventually will make me a real trainer.However,it a full time commitment,and I am there from early in the morning till late afternoon.Also in the week we do roughly 16(!) hours of various gymnastics.So as you can see:
1)I dont have the power or endurance to do my full body 3 times per week.
2)I dont have the time.

I have only 2 days that I can use at night to train myself,so I thought the best way is to use a Reeves intermediate routine.This is it:

Day one,Power day:
Work reps up to 7,the add weight to do 5 again etc.
BB row........3x5
BB Bench Press......3x5
BB Overhead Press.....3x5
DB curl........3x5
BB calf raise.....3x5-10

Day two,Hypertrophy day:
Wok up to 12 reps,then add weight etc
DB/BB row........3x10-12
BB Press......3x10-12
BB Bench.....3x10-12
DB curl........3x10-12
BB calf raise.....3x15-20

Day #3:If I have the time,AND these are auxiliary exercises that I like doing,but are not the basis of my workouts.
Walking Lunges 3x5
Dumbbell Row 3x5
Incline BP 3x5
Dumbbell Shoulder Press 3x5
This is an extra day,with a workout that lasts roughly 30-40 mins and will do it on Saturdays IF i Have the strength and the will to do so.
