Chest-Try and substitute dips or declines for db press. You already hit that area with the barbell.
Triceps-Lying overhead triceps press and skullcrushers are the same thing. It would be too much on your elbow joint.
Back-Stiffleg deadlift is predominately a leg/hamstring exercise. Plus you are already doing regular deadlifts anyways. Substitute pulldowns.
Shoulders-Clean and press to front for 3 sets, then the back for 3 sets? That has to be a typo. That's like saying you'll do barbell bench to hit the middle of the chest, then I'll do some dumbbell presses to...umm, hit the middle some more?
Legs-Squats are meant for legs pure and simple. You're going deadlift crazy for some reason...

Also, what is a BB Shrug? When I say clean&press front and back it means that i work the front and rear deltoid.

BB Shrug means you hold the barbell shoulder width, then you try to touch your shoulders to your ears working the muscle in between your neck and shoulder.

When you clean and press to the back, can you describe it? I took it as you clean the barbell up, then do a behind the neck press. If so, that only works the front deltoid not the rear.

If that was the case, then why do inclines, declines, dips, ect. Why not do 5 sets of bench press and leave? :eek:

What you have down is fine for biceps and triceps. Just exclude either Lying overhead triceps press or skullcrushers because they are the same thing.

Dumbbell kickbacks for triceps and pulldowns for back. You really don't "need" exactly four exercises either. Variety is good, but you don't need two exercises that work the same area of muscle. Again, refer to the sticky at the top of the page and pick one exercise per muscle section.

Looks alot better, finally. But...I don't think you need both the behind the neck presses and the clean and presses. Both are good for working the front delt, but I think for you, you should just pick one or the other.

Alright I will drop the behind the neck press and add BB front raise. That will work right?
