    I'm really having a hard time understanding this workout. Try posting it with some structure to it.

    Day 1: Chest, Tris
    flat 3 x 10
    skull crushers 3 x 10

    something like that.

    Too much volume, and that's an upper lower split, not full body. You are doing more for your chest than for your back. Your shoulders get a lot of work from chest work and you should change up the rep range. I think you should stick to the basics also. IE:
    Squats 3x5-10
    SLDL 1x5-10
    Bench 2x5-10
    weighted dips 2x5-10
    bent over rows 3x5-10
    pull ups 2xfailure
