One part of the week i'm isolating the muscles, and when i repeat the workouts it's all compound training for mass. What does everyone think? Any suggestions?

I stopped working out legs for a while...otherwise, what do you think? where do i need improvements?

Dude, you gotta have legs in there some where or else youll be all outta proportion. At least one day a week, do 4 sets of squats and calf raises. You may want to separate Back and Shoulders, they are huge muscles and you can get a better workout beating the $hit outta them on separate days rather than both at once.

i would switch day 2 & 3 and put in a day of legs

Use a leg day to give your upper body a rest. Your triceps are involved in your chest workout, then you hit them directly the following day. You also hit biceps the day before back which could cause early fatigue and limit your strength capabilities of your back. Your lifts look good. Personally, I would integrate a pressing movement in your shoulder program.

2. i would NOT do arms before back and tri's..your back uses a lot of bi's, and if u do bi's the day before your back workout will not be 100% because of it. drop the kickbacks atleast, and maybe the pushdowns...do close grip bench press, and tricep extensions, and add one thing, like pushdowns...for biceps, i think you should stick to 3 exercises of 3-4 sets, as they will be worked w/ back workout
3. Im a big fan of Deadlifts and weighted pullups for back, and nothing has improved my back definition and thickness as doing Deads, wieghted pullups, Bent over BB rows, and seated cable rows. Pulldowns are inferior to weighted pullups, unless u cant do a pullup...
4. and please train legs, even if its light...do 90 lbs Ass to grass squats if u have to, its more than just training the legs, and the hormone release will make a difference.
my 2 cents.
and have 1 or 2 days (if totally necesssary) to take off depending on my schedule.
