Hello! i have recently been looking into the costs/benefits of a push/pull split workout. I have been using an arnold split (shoulders/arms, chest/back, legs) for the past 5 years and I have a pretty comprehensive scheme. Wondering if the switch will be worth it, any advice is appreciated!!


Well, here is my two cents:

The major benefit of Push Pull Legs is simple. Everything you push you do on one day, everything you pull you do on another. Everything with your legs, you do on another day.  That gives your muscle groups lots of time for recovery.  Ideally, you'll hit each session twice weekly, but once a week could be enough, depends on your available time.

PPL is best for people who can get in three to six workouts a week.  It really depends on how quick you want to see results.  But its definitely a validated workout method.
