Default My routine

HI, I am new to the forum. I'm 52 and been working out since 16 yrs old (on and off). I would like opinions of my routine. I work out 3 times a week. Mon, Wed, Fri. I work out for about an hour and 15 minutes. The last 25 minutes are on the elliptical. I try to mix up my excercises.
Monday: I work back, I do 16 sets of 12 reps each. Then 9 sets of biceps 12 reps. I work out pretty fast with little rest between sets.
Wednesday: Chest, 16 sets , 9 sets of triceps.
Friday: Shoulders 16 sets 12 reps plus 4 more sets for traps. Legs, 12 sets.
I recently changed my routine to 12 reps for each set and don't bother with light or heavy days anymore. I feel like I am getting better results doing this. I don't want to change my 3 day routine either. My biological clock is ticking and I want to look and feel better, I don't care about strength.What do you guy think of this routine? To many shoulder sets?

what are your exercises for each day?! Seems like you have a good base down, but maybe try incorporating a lower/upper body mix to the 3 days of training, or maybe a push/pull split as well. 16 sets for shoulders, 4 traps, and 12 more sets for legs, seems like quite the load for one workout.
Definitely check out some routines online. There's plenty of options for you that you can stick with your 3 day split, just modified.
