    That looks like a crazy workout, way too much for a whole body routine. If my math is right you are doing 55 sets in one workout?!?! Plus cardio. You must be at the gym for a long time. You can't possibly be putting in the proper effort in every excerise with that much work in one sitting.

    If you're going to do whole body you might want to drop back to 1 or 2 exercises per muscle group. Pull out 1 or 2 exercises from each body part on your list and make it work out A. Then take 1 or 2 from the left overs and make it workout B then alternate between those workouts.

    I'll also give the standard response to look for one of the pre-existing beginner routines on here. There should be something that works for you and has to be better than what you got going on right not. If you can't make gains then it isn't working.

    LOL, I didn't even catch that with 55 sets there isn't one lower body excercise. WTF? I guess this is a classic example of why you shouldn't start off with a homebrew workout program.
