Look slike a reasonable start, although I think you might be better served by a simpler routine.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

What kind of sets/reps are you going to be using?
Um, just a few suggestions...
I'd think about putting your arm workout later in the week as opposed to the first workout only because, your arms get used in pretty much any upper body lift like benches or rows. If you smoke your arms first thing in the week, you may not be able to give you bigger bodyparts as good a workout 'cause your arms will be tired.
For shoulders, I'd get rid of one exericse (not the militaries). Your shoulders are a relatively small muscle group which gets worked during both chest and shoulder workouts.
Lastly, for back....I'd throw in barbell rows! Although, I'm somewhat partial towards those. :-)
He made some very good points. Putting the arm workout later is definitely a good idea.
I would probably put a day or 2 of something else in between chest and shoulders because your tri's will be worn out from the shoulders to give you a proper chest workout.
