PPL 2x week - opinions

I have a gym very close to my office so…

What you think about this kind of split:

Mon Pull
Tue Push
Wed Legs
Thu Pull
Fri Push
Sat Legs
Sun Off


Bent over row 3x6-8
Pulldowns 3x8-10
Seated row 3x8-10
DB shrugs 3x10-12
BB curls 3x10-12
Hammer curls 3x10-12


Bench press 3x6-8
Incline DB press 3x8-10
Cable flyes 3x10-12
Lateral raises 3x10-12
Triceps extensions 3x10-12
Rope pushdowns 3x12-15


Squat 3x6-8
RDL 3x8-10
Leg press or Lunges 3x8-10
Leg curls 3x10-12
Standing calf raises 3x12-15

You are made of harder stuff than me if you’re going to be a bar on your back to squat after a day of smashing pushing work. And my lower back would be pretty tender after squats and RDLs: hitting up those bent over rows the next day would suck for me. Typically you see “Push/pull/legs” for that very reason.

How much do you want to wager he hasn’t actually worked out in the past month?


The usual questions.

What are your goals? How long have you been training? How is your diet? What are your current lifts?
