    I;ll bet you can get a lot better gains in strength and size if you decrease the number of chest exercises 17? that;s a lot.
    also try some leg presses or front squats for leg day
    Try T-rows for back day, and db rows
    try military presses for shoulders and barbell shrugs
    I also think 15 sets is way too much for biceps, you're gonna fry em and they won't get very big

    I can't say that this will guarantee results but I know that before I was doing a lot of chest sets and couldn't get my chest to grow and once I limited my sets to 12, within a few weeks my chest and my strength were much bigger and stronger. Less is better

    I agree with the chest part. If you are doing bench press then I don't see why you need to do DB bench. That is over doing it IMO but that's all. Keep up the good work.

    Obviously it'll vary from one person to the next, but your workout and set numbers were really extreme man. Chest sure...12 sets is OK...still on the high side, but OK. Legs can handle lots of sets...but again, 12 is a good number.

    Bis and tris don't need more than 6 to 9 working sets, IMHO. They're smaller muscles... Shoulder and back...i would keep them in the 8 to 12 set range as well.

    Welp...thats a commonly used concept... Heavy weights, lower reps and sets...often induces muscles growth provided the diet is there!
