Its looks good.

You should lose five of the pressing sets for chest, and add a two flyer sets.

I would drop two biceps sets and add two calf sets. The muscle are about the same size and should be worked with the same number of sets.

Drop one of the rows and the shrugs. also Drop one of the laterals, theres too many sets for shoulders.

Theirs too many sets for tris too I would drop on of the exersices. Drop the leg press, there's too many pressing exerices for legs.
