* This is only my opinion and some might disagree however I believe it is a good starting and can be adjust to you personally as you go along.
* I believe putting to smaller muscle groups together like chest and shoulders makes sense the deltoids are recruited some when doing chest therefore a little preexhausted.
* I would do back by itself since it is a very large muscle group.
Good Luck and

Sorry Tiger, TOTAL mis-print on my part, i meant i do 3-4 Excercises per muscle group a week consisting of 9-12 Sets total....
JayRod, i have tried supersetting chest and back, not really a fan of it.
..and HARDGAINER i love doing cardio after legs, it gets the blood flowing in there and makes for better recovery times in my experiences, not nearly as sore for the next few days.
Thanks for all your Feedback guys

I def wouldn't do cardio after training legs.You might think it's a good idea,but it's not.You'd be better off doing cardio the day after legs(active recovery).
I'd do something like this :
Mon : Back/Bi's
Tues : Chest/Tri's
Thur : Quad/Ham
Fri : Cardio
Sat : Delts/calves/abs
Sun : Off
I would also focus on low volume,high intensity.Some muscle groups don't need the 9-12 sets you are doing.
You can blast your Tri's/Bi's/Delts/calves/Abs only using 6 sets.As long as the intensity is there.Why expend all your energy in the gym?That's less you'll have for the vital recovery stage.
