Split muscles?

Well, which routine would be better for building muscle?

ROUTINE 1
Workout 1 - Legs + Abs
Workout 2 - Back + Biceps
Workout 3 - Chest + Triceps

OR...

ROUTINE 2
Workout 1 - Biceps + Chest
Workout 2 - Back + Triceps
Workout 3 - Legs + Shoulders + Abs

I have heard that doing opposing bodyparts is better?
Can you tell me which would be better + a reason?

    You can do either routine split as long as you have the right amount of rest in between each workout. for routine 1, I would have workout 3 in between workout 1 and 2. that so your legs can recover from back properly and vice versa. FOr your second routine, I would split that into 4 workout days.

    I like the first routine better, because I like working complimentary muscle together for optimal recovery. But thats my preference.
