    If you like going to the gym you could always do cardio on non-weight days. I do full body work outs M-W-F and when I am not actively trying to gain weight I do cardio & core work T-T-S. The cardio intensity will depend on your goals but if you are looking for an excuse to be in the gym it is a good one.

    Day 1 - Back
    Day 2 - Chest
    Day 3 - rest (cardio/abs)
    Day 4 - Legs/Bi's
    Day 5 - Shoulders/Tri's
    Day 6 - rest (cardio/abs)
    (repeat)

    While this isn't probably what you were thinking, this 2 on, 1 off routine is my current routine. I typically do cardio/abs on one of the other days as well. It's usually basketball or some other sport anyways. I'm in the gym usually 6 days a week...but lift 4 or 5.

    You can do either a normal push pull, or upper lower split and just do different rep ranges.
    Monday - Push 6x3 for all exercises
    Tuesday- Pull 6x3 for all exercises
    Wednesday - push 3x8
    Thursday - pull 3x8
    Friday Push 2x15
    Sat. Pull- 2x15
    Sunday- sleep and eat

    Push exercises are anything where you push away from your body. Examples include squats, military press, bench press, dips, leg press. etc
    Pull exercises are where you do just the opposite of push. Examples include dead lift, rowing variations, pull-ups, chin ups-, curls etc

    So for each day you would do something like this for push:
    Squats 6x3 or 3x8 or 2x15
    shoulder press 6x3 or 3x8 or 2x15
    bench press 6x3 or 3x8 or 2x15
    dips 6x3 or 3x8 or 2x15

    I like to to do shoulders, chest, triceps and some neck work on Mon. and back, legs, biceps and some calf and forearm work on Tues. I will do 1 compound movement for each in a 3x3 or 5x5 scheme. Wed. I will do some cardio and Thurs. start over with Mon. parts but do assistance work (alot of db's) higher reps and not quite to failure focusing alot on form and contraction. Fri is the same as Thurs. just the Tues. body parts and Sat. and Sun. are spent maintaining my food and just doing whatever my weekend chores are but no gym time.
    This has done wonders for me, the workouts take less than an hour but you are doing something all week long and if you wanted to you could even start over during the weekend I am sure. I have good energy during the weekend but I am usually in the country or the beach and I am always doing outside work so I dont bother to lift because I have tried and just felt like I was asking to much of myself.
