    Exercises and sets? Reps? That routine doesn't look very good (not trying to be an ass).

    Also, what's your diet like? How much protein, fat and carbs are you getting a day?

    If its going to your "gut" then your Food intake is wrong. You should only be gaining 1lbs a week, this will help you not pack on as much fatty weight!

    So, what, like 6*6 of concentration exercises? Or big compounds? Are you working close to maximum work capacity?

    Half of your chest routine is concentration.. Your back day looks alright, but you're doing squats the day after deadlifts, which is a no-no. The volume also looks kind of high. Your leg day is more than 2/3 concentration. You have way too much volume for shoulder, IMO. That arm day is just ridiculous (way too much volume, totally unnecessary). You're doing like 10x more sets for upper body than lower body.

    You need to get a better routine.

    I highly doubt that routine is the reason he's putting on a lot of fat. What is your current height/weight, and how long have you been training?

    Do a search for a Rippetoe routine, a Bill Starr 5*5, WBB1 or BGB (baby got back). Those are all good routines.

    I don't think the routine is the issue. What does your diet look like?

    Your diet looks pretty good. Do you know how many calories, grams of fat, grams of protein, and grams of carbs your getting every day? (roughly)
