    Routine seems good. Not overtraining at all. As long as our nutrition is on point and your sleep is good. Should recover good, I am a huge believer in that your body will tell you when it's too much. If you get that point that reevaluate things but otherwise seems good. No sure about your load on the other days but chest and bis looks good, I would rotate some other exercises in every once in awhile to keep body from getting use to it.

    Get a heart rate monitor and track your HRV on a smartphone. Then you will have some solid data to see how well you are recovering.

    What you post there is not likely to cause over training

    Unless you're test levels are minute, sleeping 3-4 hours a night, and in a huge caloric deficit, then I highly doubt it.
