    What are your goals? Critiquing a workout programme without knowing that is like reviewing a book that you haven't read.

    How old are you? If you are young just about anything will put on mass initially as long as you eat enough. At some point though you are going to want to get more efficient and spend a bit more time out enjoying life than in the gym

    It sounds like a good starting point, I think your rep counts may be too high (going above 12 reps sounds like you might as well just up the weight and keep the reps at or under 10). Do it for a few months and see where it takes you, as long as you stick with it, it sounds like it should yield good results.

    3 months I would go back to basics with Starting Strength or StrongLifts - focus on the big compound movements.
