  2. Most of the movements you listed are isolation exercises, where are your compound movements?

    If you want to get bigger and stronger you need to redesign this routine around squats, deadlifts, and benchpress. You should also include barbell shoulder presses, chinups, close grip benchpress for tri's, and some sort of cleans.

    The isolation movements have their place, but if you want to see serious results then you need to seriously tax your body (and there is nothing more taxing than the big three when done right)
