    Whats your whole routine like?

    I'd look at doing a full body or push/pull/legs with compound exercises (Squats, Deadlifts, OH Press, Rows, Bench, Chins...).

    you seem to train arms and chest twice a week
    and shoulders, legs and back once a week.

    makes no sense to me.
    plus you do chest on a weds then a fri, only one day recovery.

    at the minute i have four sessions a week.
    Chest/back
    Arms
    Shoulders
    Legs

    Abs after three of the sessions.
    some people do:
    chest and tris
    back and bi's
    legs
    shoulders

    Also you do three chest exercises and only 2 back exericses.
    You could add seated cable row, and bent over row to that.
    personally i would bench, before pec deck.

    Plus wide arm pull ups are the "daddy" exercise for a Triangular look.
