    Hi mate. Apart from the leg day, which looks a bit much to me, it looks sound. It could do with a couple less exercises in places, but it's by no means overkill. The ones I'd omit would be:

    Day 1 - Take out the flyes

    Day 2 - Take out either the barbell rows or the dumbbell rows. They're variations on a theme, so no need for both

    Day 3 - Take out the leg extensions and leg curls - quads and hamstrings are getting plenty of work already

    Day 4 - Take out either the upright rows or the shrugs

    Also change the order of the split as follows:

    Chest/tris
    Back/bis
    Shoulders
    Legs

    That way your squats and deadlifts are a bit further apart in time

    Anyway, that's my 0.002p, best of luck with the training
