    Is this split better than Push pull legs

    So I have been doing push pull legs for a while now and have just recently been looking at and trying to find workout splits that will give more gains compared to PPL.

    I found that if you do:
    mon - push
    tues - pull + legs
    wed - rest
    repeat

    then you double the number of rest days and add around 20 extra training sessions (of both push, pull and legs) each year.

    You also give your muscle a full recovery since you can do deadlifts without interfering with rather your leg or pull recovery.

    Will this workout split result in more gainz?

    Mainly depends on how you balance intensity and volume for each lift. Try upper-lower.

    Push pull would be better than that honestly

    You could also do a 6 day instead of the extra rest day:

    Push
    Pull
    Legs
    Push
    Pull
    Legs

    Unless of course you find you need more than 1 rest day per week to make progress and recover. Entirely dependent on an individual.
    - Your mindset influences your outcome. It's time to take out phrases like "I can't" or "I don't have time" and replace them with phrases like "I will make the time" and "I will keep working at it until I find a way that works." Success starts with the right mindset and believing in yourself and your dreams.

    Not sure why you'd dump your entire leg workout into just the pull day and not put anything on push day.

    Must be beyond advanced if PPL isn't enough training sessions.

    Maybe he just has one leg, an amputee? In that scenario, I think it's fine to lump your leg day with your pull day.

    I'm not sure of your training level but you're probably better off with a basic upper/lower or the standard full body push/pull honestly. The only people (IMO) who should consider PPL splits are those who are moving so much weight that UL is too much and the end exercises suffer. Lumping pull with back is a nightmare workout especially if you're really strong. You probably wouldn't be able to squat, deadlift and then turn around and do heavy rows all in the same workout so you'd have to pick lesser exercises to get around that.

    The split is literally the least important aspect of training.

    Organize it however you can to hit the appropriate volume each week and ensure adequate recovery.

    A PPL or an U/L with the same amount of weekly Volume will realistically yield the same results.
