routine i made

How about this:

Day 1:
Chest
Triceps
Shoulders

Day 2:
Rest

Day 3:
Lower (legs)
Biceps
Back/lats

This 3-day routine would be repeated over and over, so it really isn't the same each week. It's the same every two weeks. Each muscle group isn't worked again for 72 hours after being worked. Every two days of lifting, one day is rest. How does that seem? I'm 130 lbs, and looking to gain mass. That's pretty generic, doesn't include specific exercises, but how does it look?

EDIT: I forgot to add, I have probably less than 8 percent body fat, so I'm not trying to lose weight, only gain muscle.

    Personally I think a 3 day split would be better than the 2 day split, but that's me.

    it means you split the bodyparts to be worked over x days, but tends not to count the day off in between workouts (if there is one). The theory is that its hard to work the whole body vigorously in one session, so its split up over 2 or 3, sometimes 4 even 5 days.

    Example:
    Mintaka employs a 3 day split

    Monday:
    Back/bi

    Wednesday
    Chest/Shoulders/triceps

    Friday
    Legs
    Abs
    gym based forearm/grip

    (Dont listen to J5, i think he's new to this.)
