Default W8Lifter\'s Workout! (comments/suggestions appreciated!)

Due to family concerns I am out of the Challenge, so I am starting a thread here for my journal. My plan is a 4 day split, with cardio three days and abs on two of the 3 cardio days (probably Wed and Sunday) My split will be:

Sunday-Cardio/abs
Monday-Shoulders/triceps
Tuesday-Legs/calves
Wednesday-Cardio/abs
Thursday-Back/Forearms
Friday-Chest/biceps
Saturday-Cardio

I really need to clean my diet up, as right now it is my weak area and is what is keeping me from getting the vascularity and definition I am wanting to get by June 9th. I've never done a split lie this, so it should be interesting to see if i get any gains from it or not. I'll posts measurements this weekend once I get the calipers back. Again, any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. My pics from January are linked below.

<font color="green">March 17

Shoulders:

Upright Rows 1x15(95), 4x6/6/6 (135/115/95)
DB Arnold Press 4x8(45)
DB Front Raises 3x8(30)
DB Side Raises 3x8(30)
One Arm DB Rear Delts (Full ROM) 3x8(15)

Triceps:

Great way to get back in to this. I need to print off Animal's Shoulder Blitz and start with it, but this was a good way to test how well my rotators have healed. No pain in the joints as of yet, so we'll see.
