I think you're neglecting your legs a little bit. I'd recommend switching to a PPL split, to make sure you hit things like calves and hams to a full extent.

3 exercises that hit legs in 4 workouts is not sufficient in my humble opinion.

Other than that I saw no major problems.

By putting legs on another day you will also be freeing up more time to focus on your upper body push and pull movements on those days
