Initially I thought that you have hit a platue, but streghth levels are DROPPING and this is a sign of overtraining.

Post your entire program and tell us how long you have been doing it. Every other day may be difficult to keep up. Also, how long have you been training?

I think the best thing to do is take a week OFF and then start a new program. You might even do the same exercises, but change the rep/set scheme. For example if you did 3 sets of 10-12 for each exercise, try changing it to 4 sets of 6-8.
