    Is this enough?

    I am still newish to working out and recently changed up the way I workout but was wondering if it is enough? My program right now is I workout everyday but I do 2 body parts per day. I do chest/triceps, legs/back, and biceps/shoulders (so every body part will get 2 days rest). Abs I try to add on to my workout every other day. I try to do 3 exercises for every body part and all of them are 3 sets. Here is an example of my schedule.

    Monday: 3 chest exercises/ 2 triceps exercises (+abs)
    Tuesday: 3 leg exercises/ 3 back exercises
    Wednesday: 3 bicep exercises/ 3 shoulder exercises (+abs)
    Thursday: 3 chest exercises/ 2 triceps exercises
    Friday: 3 leg exercises/ 3 back exercises (+abs)
    Saturday: 3 bicep exercises/ 3 shoulder exercises
    Sunday: 3 chest exercises/ 2 triceps exercise (+abs)

    All the exercises in example are 3 sets each. If I don't mess around during workout I can usually get done in around 30 mins.

    I am in the best shape of my life right now but was wondering how far this kind of program would get me?

    You'd have to list the movements and intensities to give a full picture but off the cuff, this looks poorly balanced. The 2 biggest groups, legs and back are done on the same day. Biceps appears to take the lead on 2 days. Chest is done 3x with no break from Sunday to Monday. With smart programming, just about any split can be made to work but this doesn't look promising.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    Hard to say without all the details but doesn't look good, although I like the general volume management for someone who wants to work out 7 days/week.

    If you must stick to this general format for personal satisfaction, I think it would look much better if you take the back exercises and make it the lead exercise where you have biceps (and kick biceps to second), give legs their own days (+ abs), then break up shoulder exercises onto days where they make sense.

    Do you have some progression? By progression, I mean do you increase the weight or the repetitions or both at a set schedule? Every week, every 2 weeks, etc.

    Simply put, it's not organized enough. Chest & triceps makes sense but legs and back? And then biceps the day after back?

    You'd be better off spending 45mins to an hour in the gym and doing a standard PPL routine.
    -Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
    -Back, Biceps
    -Legs, Calves

    In the 23 hours between training sessions.

    Many (mostly advanced) lifters train every day. Some multiple times a day. They often use the same muscles almost every time (directly or indirectly) too.
