    My new routine - CRITIQUE IT

    I changed my old routine a little bit, and combined shoulder day with bicep day. I also made a few other adjustments, since I have a gym membership now, and have access to a lot more equipment. How does this routine look? Please critique it, tell me what I need to change about it.

    DAY 1: chest, triceps
    DAY 2: legs
    DAY 3: OFF (abs)
    DAY 4: shoulders, biceps, forearms
    DAY 5: back, traps
    DAY 6: OFF (abs)
    --start over--

    This are the exercises I use (in this order).

    Day 1
    CHEST:
    1) bench press (4 sets)
    2) incline Bench press (4 sets)
    3) level dumbell flyes (6 sets)

    TRICEPS:
    1) close-grip bench press (4 sets)
    2) triceps machine pressdown (4 sets)
    3) dumbell kickbacks (4 sets)
    4) dumbell overhead extension (3 sets)

    Day 2
    LEGS:
    1) squats (4 sets)
    2) seated leg press (3 sets)
    3) leg extensions (4 sets)
    4) leg curls (4 sets)
    5) calve raises (4 sets)

    Day 3
    HIIT CARDIO followed by:

    ABS:
    1) reverse crunches (2 sets)
    2) crunches (2 sets)
    3) side crunches (2 sets per side)

    Day 4
    SHOULDERS:
    1) arnold presses (3 sets)
    2) front raises (3 sets)
    3) lateral raises (3 sets)
    4) barbell upright rows (3 sets)
    5) bent-over lateral raises (4 sets)

    BICEPS:
    1) concentration curls (3 sets per arm)
    2) standing barbell curls (4 sets)
    3) preacher curls (4 sets)
    4) hammer curls (4 sets)

    FOREARMS:
    1) reverse wrist curls (4 sets)
    2) behind-the-back wrist curls (4 sets)
    3) hammer wrist curls (3 sets)

    Day 5
    TRAPS:
    1) barbell shrugs (4 sets)
    2) behind-the-back barbell shrugs (4 sets)

    BACK:
    1) pullups (3 sets)
    2) machine pulldowns (6 sets {alternate between in front and behind})
    3) bent-over barbell rows (5 sets)
    4) cable rows (4 sets)

    Day 6
    SAME AS DAY 3

    This is my routine. I usually workout around 5:00 PM, and do cardio on my days off around the same time as I would do my workout. I do abs probably about 20-30 minutes after my cardio session. Any suggestions on how I could improve my routine (any exercises need to be switched around, days switched around, anything). If there's anything wrong with this routine, please tell me. Thanks.
