Is the cardio on an empty stomach? It should be, if not.
Workout looks good.
Might have problems hitting traps the day after chest and shoulders? I would
I would do bent rows on back day
I would squat on leg day
Rep schemes look good
Best of Luck

Not exactly on empty stomach. I try just to have a few protien shakes before cardio.

I don't see squats or a deadlift variation. Rows?
It's pretty well laid out. I think you are robbing yourself by not doing those compound lifts.

Try cardio earlier on E, and use a 65-75% of MHR.
You're barely moving w/that heart-rate.
