I actually think your on the right track. I agree with the majority though. It would be better to focus on a primary lift/lifts on one day. For instance maybe combine the press and shoulder work which leaves you with a squat and deadlift day and work back on both of those days if you wanted to. The key is going to be volume/intensity control. Nothing wrong with starting at higher rep scheme and working down to lower over a period of 6, 8, 7, 13 weeks basically whatever you want. The main thing I like is you are addressing the muscles. I see to many people leaving out strengthening and building the muscles individually which leads to injury. Isnt that why we all started this in the first place? Didnt we all want bigger arms and chest haha. Micheal Shultze (SS method) really put things into perspective on how little I was actually doing in the gym. So add in your chest flies and split lunges nothing wrong with that! I put in over 40 sets today myself. O and please start using a bar to bench and eating carbs!!

The routine you outlined would be great if you had been training for 5 or 10 years. Like almost everyone else has said up to this point, it is too much for you. Stick to big compound movements as a main lift for the day and a couple of accessories. Other than that, you are just wasting time. At this point you should be focusing on building a base of size and strength.

I don't think anyone else has asked so far...what does your diet look like? Without an adequate diet, your programming is irrelevant.
