Do you think I am over training?? I feel good but I have been told that i train my arms too much.Answer:
No it doesn't look like you're over training.
However there doesn't appear to be any exercises in your routine that focuses on abs, lats, shoulders, or legs...
Chest / Abs
Back / Squats and Calves
Biceps and Triceps
Shoulders - Deadlifts
