Routine frequency

This is my workout (all exercises are 3 sets to max reps): chins, pushups, dips, squats, calf raises, dumbell curls (not always in that order). This workout does what I need but I don't know how many days I should have between. I don't mind splitting the routine up into sepereate days.

    Basically, I want to be stronger, add mass to shoulders, upper arms (most important) and chest (not to bb'er size as I'm a fighter) and generally keep fit. I don't have any weights or access to a gym. I have a chin bar, dip bars and a heavy punchbag which I use for squatting. Is this the part where you tell me I'm doing it all wrong? Any advice would be really helpful.......

    No point in splitting. Do squats first tho every time. I'd say you could do that workout twice, possibly 3 times, a week. Experiment a little with the frequency and sse what works.

    Add another movement to the beginning of your workouts.....

    Set that heavy punching bag you speak of and clean and press it for reps.

    How do I do a clean and press? I've read some posts praising 5x5 but I can't find any routine suggestions. Is there any way of doing this without weights?

    I'm trying to make a simple weight free workout, just using bodyweight and my heavy bag (it has rope round it for lifting). I just sold all my weights and my bench on ebay[:p]
