too much volume, and where is your pull day? your legs and back are the 2 largest muscle groups, yet you combine them, and dedicate a day to just push? not to be a dick, but your routine sucks.. have you read any of the stickies?

Yeah... Only two sets of 8 rows. What the hell is that?
Read the stickies and design something balanced. Check my journal for nice horizontal-legs-vertical split of you wish. Horizontal day is all pushing and pulling. Loads of fun!

Reorganize things so compound exercises come first (Close girp bench press is compound, for example).
Why do Monday twice? You are making things pretty unbalanced that way. Perhaps you should just go push-pull-legs?
Leg extensions are garbage; drop them for some type of unilateral lower body movement. Try reverse lunges.
Make sure you do something besides 2-4 sets of 8 repetitions at some point for maximal progress. Your body adapts to the repetition range first, so you should change that variable more often than anything else.
The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
I agree that there would be an obvious imbalance if you were planning on doing: Monday Workout (on Monday); Wednesday Workout (on Wed); and then Monday Workout again (on Friday). And then simply repeat the same the following weeks.
But lets say we call the Monday workout -- Workout A. And call the Wednesday workout -- Workout B.
Is there any problem doing Workout A (Monday), Workout B (Wed), Workout A (Fri); and then the following week Workout B (Monday), Workout A (Wed), Workout B (Fri)??
That would take care of the imbalance. Is there any other reason to avoid a simple Workout A/Workout B division in favor of Push (Mon)-Pull (Wed)-Legs (fri)?
I am a bit self-interested as I am currently following a Workout A (Push - including push leg exercises) // Workout B (Pull - including pull leg exercises) three times a week plan.
Hope this makes sense.
