    well 1st thing is your doing more sets for your arms (biceps and triceps) then your chest and back... i would up the sets for your chest/back and the opposite for your arms

    also, youre not doing enough for the shoulders. id recommend throwing another exercise or 2 in there.... and if its too much decrease to 2 sets of each shoulder exercise. since youre already hitting your front deltoid, id at least recommend putting in some backwards flyes to hit the back deltoid.

    I say you need to move some of your bicep, tricep, and calve sets to your other body parts. Your chest could use a couple more sets; something like 8-10 sets should be sufficient. Your shoulders also need a few more sets; 5-8 sets should be good for that. You should also throw in more back work. Something that hits up your lats would be good (Dumbell rows or chinups). As well, you need something that targets your hamstrings more on leg day. Perhaps straight-legged deadlifts or hamstring curls?

    you could go either way. some people like to hit their bis on chest day to hit them harder all at once... i personally prefer to get them really sore then hit them really hard the next week. seems like im really hitting em twice in a week if i do back/tri chest/bi

    Splits really seem to be personal preference. Your split is fine, although you may want to try a different split if you haven't already.

    I like the way chest/bi back/tri feels. I rotate them all the time to keep them guessing though.
