I might add a certain amount of squats as a daily thing if they're really important. Will also add deadlift as I haven't done much standing exercises with the barbell other than squats.
I like the tricep/bicep session too much so I think I'll keep on doing it. Other than losing majority of belly fat I had, the most progress I've noticed is with the arms so far. Biceps were nonexistent when I started, now it's around 11 inches.
Good way to fuck up your shoulder. The Smith machine only allows movement in a straight line, when benching you also need to move the bar slightly back and forward to take the pressure off of the joints in your shoulder (specifically the AC joint get's problematic with Smith bench). Even if you have to drop weight you should definitely switch to regular bench so you can activate the triceps more and keep the pressure off your shoulder joints.
Also if your just starting out (first 6 months), I would go with full body work outs to build a nice all around base for yourself. The bro splits and upper/lower splits will come in time but right now you should be hitting the compound movements. (bench, squat, overhead press, deadlift, pull ups, ect.)
