Do you think I am over training?? I feel good but I have been told that i train my arms too much.

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...

Try this:

Chest / Abs
day off
Back / Squats and Calves
day off
Biceps and Triceps
day off
Shoulders - Deadlifts
