I dont like this method... some people do it but I dont.
So yes to your question you should workout more.... Right now you are working out 3 days out of 7, why dont you try 3 days out of 6, so basical 1 on 1 off 1 on etc...

I have seen people get good results with 3 day schedules but I personally go in 5 days a week training different muscle groups. The thing is to change things up every couple weeks. Doing the same set schedule for a long period of time can cause your muscles to get used to the exercise and hesitate muscle growth from what I hear.

I'm on the same 3 day split as you right now. I've been lifting for 11 years and the key for continuous growth is to keep changing things up. I like the 3 day split alot because it gives you a good compound movement first to warm everthing up before you do your isolation excersises. Also, any other split you do will have you working each muscle group 2x per week. Example: If you bench on chest day you're still. hitting your delts, back, triceps, and even abs then you go and hit each one on another day.

Depends on your goals:
If you are training as a PL then three days is fine.
I train for strength and go with a 1 on 1 off routine.

If on AS you need to workout at least 5 days a week or more. I workout M-F and rest on Sat-Sun. That works for me b/c those two days give my muscles a chance to heal for the next week of heavy lifting. Remember you have to work out and push yourself a lot more on AS.

I disagree. I never change my training routine just because I am either running or not running a cycle.
The whole " Let me double everything up because I'm cycling" is BS.
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN overtrain while on AAS.

I don't change training while "on". I also train 3 days a week, but my split looks nothing like yours.

I'm with Diesel on this one, just because you're on AAS and recover a little quicker doesn't mean you can go haywire on the lifting. I've been on 1.5g of various AAS as well as slin and IGF-1 LR3 and tried hitting each bodypart twice per week and ended up tearing both my pecs. I'm still working through that.

3 days can be plenty. ive made my best gains hitting 3 days a week, 45min a session.
your metabolism has a lot to do with this. mine is slower.
