    Diet seems to be in order. Don't be afraid of eating more fat though if you need an easy caloric boost. You have a good frame and base to work on. I can see you progressing quite nicely.

    Routine is alright, except for a few things I can notice...

    1. Why not just go M-W-F? It would be a bit better spaced out throughout the week.

    2. Some of your stuff would probably see better gains if you lowered reps a bit. Such as...abs, shoulders, lunges, possibly your leg press, and the 100-rep tricep pushdowns honestly won't do you much good at all. Excluding the 100-rep tricep pushdowns, I'm sure you'd still see decent results with the rep ranges you're in, but IMHO you'd do better to lower the reps a bit.

    3. No need to do abs and shoulders more than the other lifts.
