Aye, infractions and I may behave. Ban, and I won't post... at least a while. And dying in my bed, many years from now, would I be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell the mods that they may take my reps, but they'll never take...

I'd switch to a routine that hits each body part twice a week something like Push/Pull/Legs would be a nice routine to possibly look into.Maxes-

Between the first two suggestions, I would choose the first.
Based on your listed conditions, we would have to know more info to give you a workout revamp that would be more personally fitting to you. Any suggestions that we could make for you would be gradual since we don't know exactly how you've [responded to / progressed with] your current workout. A drastic change to your workout program would be counter-productive to your efforts so far, considering that your workout does look fine in the meanwhile.
I would discuss more about your personal progress, then make discrete changes like adding a few more sets, raising the intensity, or moving closer/further away from intensity. You could add or take away an exercise here and there, to give more focus to a muscle [group] or exercise, respectively.Les crevettes ont été cuite quand le téléphone a sonné.

In general, everything that puts your body out of it's comfort zone is good enough of a change. It could be anything, there's plenty of ways to do that. Just to name a few: increasing intensity by shortening rest time, mixing up reps/sets/weights, swaping to different exercises, drop sets, negative reps, supersets, forced reps, pyramid sets etc. Sometimes a good week off can also do wonders.
