    * Dumbbell Flys 2 sets of 3-5 reps

    This is actually a fairly decent routine. The only thing I would change is the shoulder routine. I'd eliminate the lateral and bent over raises and replace them with 2-3 sets of push presses. The reasoning behind that is that shoulders get a lot of work on chest and back days. A few direct sets then is all they really need...if that.
