Weird workout composed by my trainer18405

Hello,
Tommorow Iam starting my new diet and gym, my personal trainer which is also my family member has composed the diet and it looks very good, althought the workout looks really weird! It's not the exercises but the routine; he told me to go to the gym three times a week like this:
Thursday - Chest, Triceps and forearms
Saturday - Biceps and traps
Monday - Shoulders and legs
And he also told me to train abs no more than 3 times a week.

The thing I see that is weird is that for example if I train my biceps then I will only train it once a week, which is little in my opinion but he said that it is because I will just overtrain and burn muscles?

Everywhere I read on the internet people train each musclegroup atleast 3 times a week to build muscle mass, please tell me what you think about it because I am really confused who to listen.

Where on the internet do you see people train each muscle group atleast 3 times a week to build muscle mass?

Don't just focus on traps. You need to get some back work in.

@Kev521 did you read the first post on this thread: http://forum.simplyshredded.com/topic/16702/page/1/routine-design-for-dummies-10/

It does lay out an example of a suggested program (and names several other well-known programs), but also directly answers the question you posted here:

I skimmed through a few of your other threads. Having a gym to go to should benefit you, but it sounds like the routine could still use some tweaking. Can you post more specifics on the exercise selection?

Jesus Christ, have you heard of full body workouts?

Training a muscle 3 times per week is much more optimal than 1, like OP's listed program.

What's the "right amount" for your body? The routine listed above isn't the worst thing I've ever seen, if I only had three days to train, it definitely wouldn't look like that. -3X

^^ that does not equal 2300 kcals. It's a little over 2500. You might consider whether or not this particular trainer is in your best interest. -3X

Seems a little on the light side to me. Then again, depends what your goals are I suppose.
