Each muscle group twice a week?
Unless you already know you are one of the very few gifted people who can do this and get consistent results, I would really recommend against it.

i would NEVER do that split. EVER. This is one split i really like
Mon - Shoulders/Traps
Tues - Legs
Wed - OFF
Thurs - Chest/Tri
Friday - Back/Bi w/deads
Weekend - OFF

the only muscle group i would lift twice is legs because they recover quickly

You really need to assess your physique and create a training programme and split that will work on your weaknesses, whilst maintaining and even adding to your strengths.

I think you would be okay, it its done right. E.g.
Early week split heavy 5 - 6 reps to failure
Later week split hypertrophy 8 - 15 reps stopping 2 - 3 reps short of failure.
Basically bit like layne norton split. I would make day 4 rest though. (rest inbewtween heavy split and hypertrophy split)

^^^^^ i would like to add on to this comment: i personally would not do it by mon,tues,wed...etc, but day 1, day 2...etc so you would get your rest. like this.
Day 1 chest tris
Day 2 back bis
Day 3 legs shoulders
Day 4 OFF
Day 5 - repeat day 1
Day 6 - day 2
Day 7 - day 3
Day 1 - OFF
day 2 - day 1

My doctor recently told me that doing back and bi and doing chest and tri build scar tissue in joints. I have no argument but also no proof except for his word...just throwin that out there.
