Incorporate Hanging leg raises into your leg/ ab routine to hit those hip flexors up. Also, dont forget about Hip Abduction. http://www.exrx.net/Lists/ExList/HipsWt ... hor1938163

first week mon wed fri then next week i workout tues thurs sat

My first thought was "God I hope you're not a beginner!" Cause that is a tough looking routine! I would think you shouldn't try something like that until you have been lifting for a few years (although others may not agree?). If you are just starting you can get a lot of results from a full body 3x a week routine. But judging from the exercises you listed you don't seem like a beginner so I am going to assume you can handle that load.

My other thought was "why M-W-F then T-TH-Sat?" Thats a real long time between Friday and the next Tuesday and then not much time from Saturday to Monday. Why not just M-W-F each week? Just curious...

You could do a 4 day slip, or a squat/push/pull split. I just think it exhausting to do back, biceps and shoulders in the same workout, especially in you include deadlifts for back.
