Was interested in trying that out and Kane Sumbatt from Controlled Labs follows this model.
I would be really careful on overtraining doing a two-a-day type workout. If both sessions are intense, you are pushing it too much IMO. I know alot of people that do something like this, but not two workouts per day. Say, I work chest on day 1... on day 2, I work back. So, on day 1 I do heavy chest, and on day 2 before my back workout starts, I do 3 or 4 sets of really light chest... then move on to heavy back... day 3, I work shoulders... I do light back, then move into the heavy shoulders.
Training twice per day, 5 or 6 days per week is just too much... most trainers that aren't crazy will agree on that. In fact, most trainers say that 3 to 5 times per week, no more than 1 hour workouts are more than enough to do strength training.

Not trying to flame, but even if you are 12 years old, 5'10" 128lbs is dangerously underweight... in fact, 150lbs is borderline. Remember, weight doesn't mean that much anyway... what matters is how much fat you have on your body. Muscle weighs more than fat anyway, so all you should be worried about it eating right and getting some muscle on your body. You could be 5'10" and 225 and if your bodyfat % is low, you will look great.
