i looks pretty good but i think you should add another set or two in the squats, i like to do two sets of warmup then 10,8,6,4,2, i also do not think you are benching enough 3 sets is not enough i usually do about 4 sets then max then i come down on around 4 sets and burnout on every one. you also need incline, incline is probably the best exercise for the chest in my opinion.

Try doing some clean and jerks or just cleans. I think it is a great excercise for explosiveness and it always seemed to hit everything. Also push press for shoulders.

It all looks good but if you want to add size I'd lower some of your eps like this is after 2-3 warm up sets (usually 2, just depends on you)
deadlift 8, 6, 6, 4
pulldowns between 6-8 reps
bent over rows 6-8 reps
reverse flyes 3 sets of 8
squat 8, 6, 6, 4
leg ext 12-15
leg curls 8-10 reps
calves look good
bench 8, 6, 6, 4
decline press 6-8 reps
flyes 3 sets of 8-10
military press 8, 6, 6, 4
lateral raise 6-8 reps
shrugs 4 sets 8-12
arms stick with 6-10 rep range
This has helped me when bulking. On your main lifts go HEAVY low reps and secondary lifts go heavy with moderate reps.

I would add a set of dumbell concentration curls or overhead cable curls to really hit that peak of the bicep. I also agree with Houseofpain's suggestion of incline presses. I usually always do a set of flat's and alternated either incline or decline each week. Also, a warmup set should never be included in with the number of working sets. Other than that it looks fine to me.
For calves I recommend training 2 to 3 times a week and taken to absolute failure. I started doing this a couple of months ago and I"ve gained 1/2 inch on both calves in about 2 months.
Just my opinion though.

I wouldn't work arms right after chest/shoulders since your tris get worked while doing chest and shoulders. Also, the reps are too high, I would go lower. Personally I'd go 4-6, but alot of people here disagree with me and will tell you like 6-10 which is ok too.
