Good luck with it bro, train hard!
Here's my comments:
You will be affecting triceps on 3 consecutive days - wed / thu / fri. This will most likely be counterproductive with regards to triceps growth.
Leg day - try changing the order around. Leave quads till after hams and calves so that you aren't completely knackered when you come to train them (if you are squating right you shouldn't really have any energy left afterwards, lol).
I recommend you do hamstrings, then calves and then quads. Also try doing the leg extensions first in your quad workout - this will pre-exhaust them before your compound movements and so these compound movements will hit your quads better and be more productive.
I'm not really too keen on your chest & back workout and your arm workout (I'm not a fan of alternating between parts) but it'll be interesting to see how it goes hey?! Also, what is your reasoning for doing the upright rows after shrugs?
