    full body routine for mass

    hi,recently i have thoughts about full body routine something like this:

    squat
    rows
    bench press
    chin up
    db shoulder press

    do you think it's effective for mass??(i heard that this is working on strength more than mass ,true?)>?

    *the frequency is twice a week

    *3 sets each muscle ( in one workout-hit style)

    *40 minuts per workout

    what do you think,worth to try?

    thanks

    I think it would be a good idea to throw in some isolation exercises for the muscles that don't get hit much from the one's you listed. I wouldn't recommend going to failure, most people overtrain too quickly when using high frequency and going to failure.
    And as said before, a push/pull 2x per week, or full body 3-4x per week might be a bit better, though you'd need to lower the volume per muscle per day if you choose the latter.
    If you're interested in high frequency splits, read up on HST and DFHT.
