The muscle groups are right, but where are the tri's?
I'd put them in on Monday, or Thursday

The only few things I can say is I always start every muscle group with a barbell. It will build more mass IMO and some others will agree to this. On off days try to do some cardio in the AM and abs? If ya want to.
oh yeah dont forget those calves on leg day!
Listen to Abstrack he has some good ideas there!
This is just my 2 cents on the matter. Im not a pro by any means. just thought it might help ya out a little.

LOOKS GOOD TO ME FOR THE MOST PART. I WOULD HAVE ONE OF MY EXCERCISES BE BARBELL ANDF THE OTHER ONE YOU COULD USE DUMBBELL. INSTEAD OF THE PUCHDOWNS I WOUD DO EITHER CLOSE GRIP BENCH OR SKULL CRUSHERS ON A DECLINE BENCH WITH A EZ-CURL BAR OR A STRAIGHT BAR.

Actually I was thinking of doing this instead
Flat dumbell press 10,8,6
Incline dumbell press 10,8,6
Flat flys 10,8,6
Incline flys 10,8,6
Overhand pushdowns 10,8,6
Rope pushdowns 10,8,6
Underhand pushdowns 10,8,6
Leg extensions 10,8,6
Leg curls 10,8,6
Reverse hyperextensions 10,8,6
Calve raises 12,10,8
Reverse calve raises 12,10,8
Seated dumbell press 10,8,6
Side lateral raises 10,8,6
Seated reverse flys 10,8,6
Seated rear rotator cuffs 12,10,8
4 way neck machine 3x12
Kneeling cable crunches 12,10,8
Cable side bends 12,10,8
Seated cable rows 10,8,6
Close grip lat pulldowns 10,8,6
Wide grip lat pulldowns 10,8,6
Rope/strap pulls 12,10,8
Straight bar preacher curls 10,8,6
Forearm curls 12,10,8
Reverse ez bar preacher curls 10,8,6
Reverse forearm curls 12,10,8
The reason I use dumbells and don't do any close grip bench is because I workout alone and have no spotter. The reason I do rotator cuff exercises AND reverse flys is because I have an inpinged shoulder and I need to strengthen the rotator cuff.
Is this routine better than the one I originally posted?
