Standing barbell hammer curl
Total of 10sets, is this to much for my biceps?

for more defined biceps try reverse cable curls. dumbell preacher curls also help. you should probably do at least 3-4 exercises, and everyone else is right, you gotta switch it up.

So I would be better off doing 3 exercices of each 3 sets, instead of 2 exercices of each 5 sets.
I just found it weird why you would do a preacher curl 3 sets and then a standing barbell curl 3sets, its the same movement you make. So you do a totall of 6 sets of the same movement. I thought that would be overtraining.

Well on a day you want to use preacher then dont do standing barbell if you feel it is not beneficial, instead do concentration curls or something else. There are tons of different variations to the core excercises. Use trial and error and see how you can get the most effective workout and hit each point in ur bi's. I would say 9 sets is a good place to start (3x3 as you said above).
