Well the thing is, any program you do will help, and the following is just my opinion based on the things I've read and experienced.
I'm not a huge fan of bodypart days, I prefer an upper/lower split, but some people swear by 'em so not really a huge deal I guess
I'd up the sets on some exercise, and to compensate get rid of other's all together. For example: You don't need both Seated Calf Raises and Calf Raises, or 3 different types of curls.
Oh and I like alternating body parts, so instead of resting 2 or 3 minutes between sets, rest 60-90 seconds and exercise a different body part. For example I'd change workout #2 to something like this:
1A: Close grip Bench 4 sets of 8-10 or 5 sets of 6-8
1B: (Weighted) Chinup 4 sets of 8-10 or 5 sets of 6-8
2A: Standing straight bar curl 3 sets of 8-10
2B: (Weighted) Dips 3 sets of 8-10
3A: Dumbbell curl to Press 3 sets of 6-8
3B: Pylometric (clap or swiss ball) Pushups 3 sets of max reps (increase total each time)
Anyways just some thoughts, although it might be good to stick with what you are doing for 4-6 weeks, get the hang of and try another type of program. You want to switch fairly often anyways.
