Since you are cycling, i wouldn't recommend a monday, wednesday, friday routine. Testosterone aids in recovery!! Might do your workout for a 3 day split. Three days on, one day off, three days on. This way you will hit everything with a bit more frequency. I think that will be most beneficial while juicing. Your exercises look ok. Personally i don't like 5 sets. Would rather due less sets, and add another exercise for variation and still stick around the 12-16 set range. Like 4 exercises/3 sets, or 4 exercises/4 sets. Just make sure your diet is on!!!

with the cycle you are on and the low amount of volume in number of sets you are doing you could easily do a 3 day on 1 off and work everything twice a wk. and not overtrain.
