Help Organize My Workout
I have always worked out the same way for as long as I can remember. I have finally compiled an actual workout split and exercises; but need help organizing them. Feel free to suggest different exercises or to get rid of some. I need help specifically putting the exercises in order for each day. Thanks in advance!

Seated Single Dumbbell Triceps Extensions
Seated Dumbell Press

One Arm Dumbbell Rows
Lat Pull downs (regular/far grip)
Incline Dumbbell Curls
Hamstring Curl Machine
Behind The Back Curls
Dumbell Forearm Curls

There's nothing wrong with doing everything you've listed. It all depends on your experience level and although most won't admit it, almost everyone can learn something by going back to a beginners strength routine. After 3 years of doing magazine routines and spinning my wheels I didn't see as much progress as I have doing a simple strength program. The way I look at it is you have to build it up before you can chisel it and refine it down. Just like a sculptor.

I would second the notion to keep things simple and focus on the big compound movements to get your size and strength back. You could throw in a couple of isolation exercises here and there at the end of workouts, but I think all the stuff you have listed is overkill given your situation.

do you plan on subbing in different exercises every couple of weeks or something?
you don't plan to do everything you've listed on their respective days, do you?
what would a sample day look like in terms of sets/reps/exercise selection?

IMO this is horrible!!!!! I mean really bad unless your injecting a ton of drugs. There is really way too much volume. For one your either gonna be at the gym for hours or your rest time will be so short that you will not be able recover enough for your next set. Second and more importantly your volume is so Incredibly high that you are just doing unneeded damage to the muscles that will just take longer to repair. There's a big differance between stimulating your muscles to grow and destroying them.
I only do 4-6 sets max per body part, even while on cycle. Not excercises but total sets. The way I figure IOC you can't get growth off that than your not working out hard enough.

I agree with srs2000, this workout defiantly is overkill. With a routine like this you might see some gains within the first few weeks or so (if you haven't torn your muscles to shreds), but after that you will stop, and possibly even get weaker. Focus on your three main lifts (four if you want to include military press), bench press, squat, and dead lift. I would recommend a west side routine or something similar. You should separate your lifting days into to groups, max effort, and dynamic effort. Max effort days obviously are to improve your big lifts. Lifts on these days are generally low volume with higher weight. Dynamic effort days, or speed days if you want to call it, focus on explosiveness to help your big lifts. For more information look up any west side routine and it will be explained in much greater detail. Now if your an athlete, I recommend checking Joe DeFranco's website.

Ya please tell me this is just a sample list of exercises to choose from. I personally have started only doing 1 heavy pressing exercise for chest and shoulder days. The rest of the work comes from flyes and raises mostly. For back I like to go heavy but have to go with more reps due to weight limitations. So I make sure to bring the intensity. Legs I have been leaning toward more compound lifts. Like to have a day set aside for arms.
