How does this Push/Pull/Legs split look?

  1. How does this Push/Pull/Legs split look?


    This a volume based workout with each main lift being strength/hypertrophy based. Each day will have 15 minutes of calves/abs work.

    Is this too much work for one session? Too many sets? Any ideas are appreciated.

    PUSH

    BB bench 3x6-8
    DB Incline 4x10
    Cable crossovers 4x12
    Military press 4x6-8
    Lateral raises 4x12
    Upright rows 4x12
    Seated extensions 4x10
    Cable push downs 4x12
    Other options include-(Dips, triceps press machine, chest press machine, etc)
    Calves
    Abs

    PULL

    Deadlift 3x6-8
    Lat pulldowns 4x12
    Seated rows 4x10
    Barbell rows 4x10
    Shrugs 4x10
    EZ bar curls 5x10
    Preacher curls 5x10
    Incline DB curls 4x12
    Other options include-(Row machine, pull ups, etc.)
    Calves
    Abs

    LEGS
    Squats 3x6-8
    RDL 4x10
    Leg extensions 4x10
    Leg press 4x8
    Leg curls 4x10
    Seated calf raises 5x12
    Standing calf raises 5x12
    Calves
    Abs


  2. Personally I'd add in something for the rear delts on your pull day, 3 sets of facepulls, bent over rear delts raises or whatever. I wouldn't train abs and calves every day either I pulled an abdominal muscle before when I was training them every day and it's ****in painful, couldn't even eat without pain for 3 days. Maybe too many sets as well, especially for arms if you're hitting them twice a week 3 exercises and 5 sets could be too much to recover from in a few days(unless you're on gear). Apart from that it looks a solid enough routine to me.

  3. I'd suggest no more than 2 exercises per body part per day... mroe than that and the volume from each workout gets insane and a) your workouts take 2+hrs b)you can't recover in time to hit the ppl again within a week and c) your lifts at the end of the workout will jsut be crap due to overall fatigue.

    I personally run a very similar PPL split over 6 days and found taht more than 2 sets really just hinders recovery and the next workout. Not to mention a lot of lifts have carryover to the other days (ex - deads ruining the next leg day, etc)

    Just cut that in half and you should be fine man. Longer workouts I prefer because it really tests my willpower lol. Just have all your post workout supplies on hand for once youíre finished and canít walk lol

    Second this, most people need facepulls, band pull aparts etc personally I think they have to be high rep to be effective as well (20 plus).

    I like pull ups or pull overs instead of lat pulldowns just because it’s more bang for your buck but it looks nice.

    No unilateral stuff? Might be worth considering (make the seated rows single arm for example)?
