it looks like your doing an upper body workout three days in a row which isnt good, give the muscle time to rest, its the only way they will grow. throw your tricep day withj your bicep day. . .also looks like your doing more then you need to for biceps, triceps and just about everything, and again another leg day would be good, no need to train the upper body that much or it wont grow ya feel me, i hope that helps ya bro

yeah too many sets for the biceps and you need to do squats.

D amn! Bro 16 sets for your biceps? That does look like too much...you are working your upperbody too much as well, and thats not going to give it time to grow . Try this type of split. It's the average split yeah, but if you need anothe split after a couple weeks PM me and i'll write a program up for you and the sets you should do to prevent overtraining.
Monday: Chest/Triceps , chest 6-18 sets. Triceps 6-12 sets.
Tuesday: Biceps/Back , Back 12 sets, Biceps 12 sets.
Wednesday: Off (or you could do abs since they recover so quickly)
Thursday: Legs I dont know what you would do for legs...but i'm doing about 12-15 sets for legs.
Friday: Shoulders 10-12 sets.
Hopefully this will help you out some....Just remember, Squat and GROW!
