    doesn't look too bad, but the advice i am going to give is my opinion. first, bicep workouts need barbell curls and hammer curls. second, you should hit more of your rear delt, and do the press in front of the neck (IMO). third, your back workout needs deadlifts (back in my eyes). I do deads, lat puldowns, one arm db rows, and thats about it. i don't see a need to do lat pulldowns and chins, but others might disagree. this help any?

    Nowhere did you mention working abs and forearms and those, along with calves, are often done at least 3 times a week.

    How often do you work them?

    AZ to MA...depends on whe
    Not bad, but let me offer a little advice...

    1) Personally, I do a lot more for legs. I like to hit a few exercises for both quads and hams...squats, leg press, stiff legged deads, leg xtensions, leg curls...maybe that's a lot, but i don't feel sufficiently stressed if I don't hit legs a few different ways...for you, i'd suggest maybe one more exercise to start out - possibly stiff legged deads...

    2)Like Frky said - i'd suggest shoulder presses in front of the head, rather than behind. I know this is an arguable topic, but i think the risks outweigh the benefits of behind the neck...also deads for back is a good idea for overall mass...

    3)Frky said this as well, you should hit rear delts as well...don't want to forget them

    4) I'd do a minimum of 3 sets per exercises...i don't feel that 2 is enough to really stress the muscle

    Other than that stuff...i'd say it looks good...happy lifting
