    Here is how I would change your routine:
    1.Flat Bench
    Incline Bench
    Skull Crushers
    Decline Crunches

    2.Deadlift
    Pullups
    Rows
    Curls

    3.Squats
    Lunges
    Calf Raises
    OH Press
    Decline Crunches

    That was just real quick, without much thought into it

    And maybe space the exercises out over the week. Maybe workout weekends. You might wear yourself down / not give yourself enough time to grow if you're working out 5 days in a row.

    PS - 'Latissimus' Dorsi pulldowns, not 'lateral' pulldowns.

    So it would look a little like this. And I forgot to mention, abs are like every other muscle. They need rest to grow. 3 times a week is enough.

    One more note, you don't need to work your abs out five times a week

    One or twice is plenty.

    Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.

    That would probably be best. Like was already mentioned, you don't have the knowledge to make your own routine. I don't even have the knowledge to make my own routine, so I use BGB.

    For you, I'd look at WBB1.1 or BGB (I'm not very fond of the routines that work a muscle group only once a week). If you're a begineer WBB1.1 would probably be the better choice.
