That workout looks similar to somthin me and AandF6969 did a while back. I know leg day was wed, the $hittiest of them all. I didnt see a Monday in that schedule though, I assume its an off day as well. Or you could throw A BACK WORKOUT ON MONDAY, or anytime for that matter. Do squats first on wed, big muscles first so the lil ones can not be worn out to support. Big muscle exercises are most important i.e. squat ala quads. Do your barbell curls before abs on fri. Every once in a while do incline flys before flat bench, your pecs will hurt so good for the next two days.
Do that for a while and rethink the cycle. Do more on cycle because your body recovers faster and add more weight, $hit loads more.

I Always use as much weight as i can handle with good form, if you sacrifice form for weight then not only are you setting yourself up for injury but your wasting time and energy.
Big weights,Low reps is what i believe in.
As for working my calves before quads, i usually always start with the big compound movements but like i said. I change it all up every 3 weeks so my body doesn't get a chance to adapt to one particular training routine
