You have 1 leg day, 1 push day, 1 pull day and Friday which is push + calves. What do you think?

it's an improvement, but I don't think your routine is very good. I would check the stickied thread about beginner workouts if I were you

Here is what I'd do, using close to the same exercises you have. The result is you have an antagonistic for every one of your exercises.

MONDAY:
Squats 5x5-10
Leg Extensions: 3x15 I'd take this out and do either a closed stance leg press or additional squat for quad work.
Stiff leg Deads 4x10
Standing Calf Raise 4x10
Abs


TUESDAY:
Incline DB Press 4x6-10
Weighted Chins 3x4-6
Weighted Dips 4x6-10
Cable rows 3x10-12

THURSDAY:
Deadlifts 3x8-10
add good mornings
BB Curl 4x8-12
Cambered bar Skullcrushers 4x6-10
Abs


FRIDAY:
Seated BB Press 3x6
BB Rows 3x6-8
Seated DB Press 2x8-10 I'd take this out and replace with an overhead press add chins for a second day or some other lat work

What are you trying to accomplish with this routine, specifically? Because it's not balanced, and I doubt you'd be able to achieve balance without overhauling it completely. And do you need balance? Maybe you need imbalance to correct imbalances? If you outline your goals and challenges, we can probably help you find something that'll work for you. But designing your own program is a good way to be that guy at the gym who works out 5 days a week and looks like he works out 5 days a week. (At the buffet.)
