    I'm a fan of upper/lower. Though I'm
    a powerlifter, it's still benefitted me in adding muscle.

    Example

    Lower-
    Deadlift
    Front Squat
    Hamstring

    Upper
    Bench
    Row
    Assistance

    Lower
    Squat
    Good Morning's
    Lunges

    Upper
    Overhead Press
    Row variant/pull-ups

    I am with Sean and even though I too train for strength or more of a 1RM, the compound exercises and frequency of training can be used the same for mass & BBing, >(using a 5x5 say or higher rep set/schemes) hitting the legs, hips, back, chest and shoulders 2x per week. Lately I have used a 3x per but much of my training was 4 a week splits. See Wendler's Triumvirate.
    My preference was more...
    Day 1 Squat focus/ legs, hips, back
    Day 2 Chest (focus) Shoulders, arms
    Day 3 off'
    Day 4 Deadlift focus/ legs, hips, back
    Day 5 Shoulders (focus) Chest, arms

    Throwing in some other iso and ab or grip work at the end of the big movements.
