Critique my workout routine
Im currently trying to do a Full body routine to help gain strength over the next couple of months and my buddy gave this to me that someone designed for him. Ive always had problems putting on size so i think i should go with a routine a pro made rather then doing something i make since im obviously no pro. Critique it a lot theres some exercises im not too fond of but overall it seems kind of solid my goal is to put on muscle mass, i do a good amount of running on the side as well as come various speed and agility work. The workout is below its set up so it goes Day 1 Day 2 Day 4 Day 5 with 3,4,6 being off days/cardio days.

Its a good start. I'd suggest getting rid of all the front/side raises and adding in: rear delt flys, face pulls, band pull aparts, external shoulder rotations.
I'd also throw out any squatting work on the bosu and add in single leg RDL's and monster walks, as well as glute max (hip thrusts, hip pull throughs) and glute medius/minimus (monster walks, cable abductions, etc.). There carry over from instability work on a bosu to performance or enhanced balance is quite low and very debateble.
