Please critique my workout routine
I am 22 yrs old I weight 175 currently. I would like to bulk up to about 195
I am eating 4000 cal per day and trying to get up to 5000. Here is my weekly training routine:
Monday - Chest and triceps
Wednesday - Biceps and Legs
Friday - Back and shoulders
I do about 9 total sets for triceps and biceps and about 12 total sets for everything else. I do between 6-10 reps per set.
Here are some of my concerns:
Should i do 2 muscle groups in one day?
Are the 2 muscle groups that I do in a day good to do together?
My excerices are limited i would like to try new ones, is there a web site where i could learn new ones with pictures so i can learn good form?
Please feel free to comment on how i could make my workouts more intense and efficient

Form is important and Im glad you mentioned that. Remember the golden rule. "Its not how much you lift but how you lift it".
As for your routine. If youre going to do chest and tri's on one day might as well do back and bi's one day also and do shoulders on one day alone. Do traps with back also. This is a common mistake because when you train back you hit your traps really good but some people assume since its up by the shoulders to do it on a shoulder day. Not true. Could if you want to. There's no magic formula really. Spread this work out to 4 days. I like that you do it every other day. Rest is key my man. Train legs in one day also by themselves. If you train them right you wont have any breath or energy to do anything else. Fit abs and calves all in between these workouts.
Remeber to stick to basic moves that are the meat and potato's of building. in example. Flat bench is over all chest. Standing curl is over all bi. Military press over all shoulders. Standing squat over all leg exercise. Then isolate the muscles per exercise to shape and pump them where necessary.

You routine looks good. Stick with it for a little bit before you swicth anything up. 2 muscles in one day is fine.. ive seen more done. Maybe you can do cardio or abs at home inbetween... on your off days. And keep pushing yourself and youll see those gains come.
Your cal's look good, just make sureyou educate yourself on healthy diets.

Here's the split that seems to work for me
Day 1 : Chest - Quads
Day 2 : Back - Hams
Day 3 : Shoulders - Traps - calves
Day 4 : Bi's - Tri's
Day 5 : rest
Day 6 : blast off again
Mind you, I sometimes train twice a day, once in the afternoon and once at night. I'll do one body part in the afternoon and the other at night.
I hit Abs and cardio about 2 - 3 times a week.
