    Looks like a lot of sets in one workout, and you are far too worried about little tiny muscles.

    Try it, and see how it goes.
    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

    Missing some squats, and I don't think your going to be able to keep up with that much chest work. Other than that I think its decently balanced, although I do agree with Paul: you are trying to focus on the smaller groups of muscles.

    I agree.

    The majority, and maybe the entire, amount of your volume should come from multi-joint movements.

    You have about 20-30 sets per workout. Generally, it's recommend that non-genetic freaks keep their volume to about 10-20 sets per workout.

    Not really a need for so many exersizes per bodypart. Pick a compound and maybe an isolation per bodypart.

    You may be able to maximize your gains by hitting each group more than once per week.

    How long are you planning on utilizing these parameters? It would be hard to not go stale on a training plan such as the one you posted.
