Is this too much?

I have started this routine, 5x5 (two warm up sets, 50% and 75%, then three work sets):

Workout A

Deads
Shoulder Press
Dips
Row

Workout B

Squats
Bench Press
Wide Chins
Curls

If I do this Monday, Wednesday, Friday, alternating ABA, BAB, ABA.... is that enough recovery time etc.?

    Thanks mate, just wondered if I should leave a longer gap between workouts with this kind of routine for best recovery but I do like a 1, 3, 5 schedule.
