i love the set up but a couple things i would suggest is dont start ur workout with pullups unless there weighted. you would benifit more starting with tbar rows and being able to go heavier.. but where are the deadlifts and bench presses? If your sticking to DB inclien and DB decline id say you could do chest 2 x a week. but other than that solid bro

If I were you I'd train triceps on the same day as chest and shoulders. Maybe just pick one triceps exercise and do it at the end of your workout. Most of the time you'll have to increase your overall mass before your arms start growing, so it doesn't really pay off to do a lot of arms-specific training. I'd keep the volume low here.
On your back day, replace the lat pulldowns with some deadlifts. Pullups and lat pulldowns work the lats in the same way (lat pulldowns allow you to use less than body weight) so there's no point in doing pullups then lat pulldowns later on. After your rowing exercise, stretch out for deadlifts, then do a couple warmup sets (Do 1 warmup set with a pretty light weight, then go a little heavier so you can get your muscles adjusted for heavier weights). For deads you could do 3 sets of heavy weight. Maybe have a rep scheme like 5-3-1 or 6-4-2 (after warmups). Every other week you could swap out T-bar rows for standing barbell rows.
Pay attention to what your body tells you so that you don't overtrain. If you feel like you can't give it 100% consistently, you may be overtaxing your body. If so, take a few extra days off and decrease your training volume.
When are your rest days?
