    No/hardly any legs? Need to include squats, deadlifts.

    Sack off all the machines/cables. Just stick to freeweights.

    Instead of making something up, do a proper routine. Google: starting strength, westside for skinny *******s, bill starrs 5x5 etc..

    Also, you'll never ever ever gain muscle eating only 1100-1200 cals a day, and you won't be able to sustain yourself eating so little and doing so much exercise.

    Eat closer to 2000, at least.

    That is the worst routine ever. Get on a real programme like Rippetoe's Starting Strength (google it).

    Eat 2500-3000 calories per day.

    I'm a big time pro and training expert.....it looks perfect! If you're biceps aren't burning after every session....just repeat the whole routine again.

    There's no way you can keep up that level of exercise with only 1100-1200kcal per day. Eating that little probably gives you more than the sensible aim of a 500kcal deficit even without the exercise. Your body will hate you and you'll feel fatigued permanently. If fat loss is your primary aim and you're not fussed about really progressing with the resistance training, go for about 2000kcal. Otherwise go for a bit more.

    Also, the other guys are right about your routine. It's terrible. You're pissing about doing lots of variations on chest, shoulder and arm exercises (with lots of isolations and machines) when you should be hitting your legs and back much more and do lots of compounds with free weights. Not only are you going to get way more strength and muscle out of training that way, but if you're recruiting your big muscle groups together (eg. deadlifts) instead of small muscles on their own (eg. bicep curls) you'll burn a lot more calories.
