    Lifting 3 times a week enough?

    Been thinking of doing this routine:
    Monday:Chest/Biceps
    Tuesday:Rest
    Wednesday:Legs/Shoulders
    Thursday: Rest
    Friday:Back/Triceps

    You guys think this is enough or should I be lifting more often? I am looking to gain more mass but not sure if I should add in more days.

    You should train every muscle 2-3 times a week. A good routine for a beginner like you is Babylovers Starting Strength

    THIS

    and instead of back/tris and chest/bis you should do chest/tris and back/bis becasue all of the chest compund movements you do wokr the tris ex Benchpress

    and same for back and bis, ex latpulldowns/pullups

    and than you can endoff your chest workout with a few sets of an isolation movement for tris( same for back and bis)

    This.

    Training 3day per week is perfect. Good balance between work and rest. But, as Rasse said, higher frequency is the key. Follow a full body routine. A muscle fiber just need 2-3 days to recover. If you train it once every 7 days, you are wasting 4 days.

    Starting Strength
    Babylover's version of SS
    Allpro's beginner routine

    Are good routine. You might also want to look for ws4sb(west side for skinny bastard).

    Yeah, I'm in the gym mon-fri. You could maybe add a cardio day on your rest days to get your heart rate up. Maybe do some abs too. Not sure what your trying to do.

    Upper/Lower routine used during football offseason:
    Day 1- BB BP 5 sets, Rows 3 sets, Military Press 3 sets, Pull Ups 2 sets
    Day 2- Squat 5 sets, Deadlift 2 sets, Front Squat 3 sets, Box Jumps 2 sets
    Day 3- REST
    Day 4- Military Press 5 sets, Rows 3 sets, BB BP 3 sets, Pull Ups 1-2 sets
    Day 5- Deadlift 4 sets, Squat 3 sets, Front Squat 2 sets, Box Jumps 2 sets
    This routine was used by a friend. I recently posted it in another thread, but I messed up. I like it, but it gets pretty tough when the weight goes up.
