The push/pull/legs split is a training method in which you split your body into three parts and each part is trained on its separate day.
PPL is a very efficient training split as all related muscle groups are trained together in the same workout and get the maximum overlap of movements with additional stimulation. This kind of split will allow your body to recover between sessions as there will be a minimal overlap of movements.
During the “push” workout, you are training all the upper body pushing muscles (chest, shoulders, and triceps)
During the “pull” workout, you are training all the upper body pulling muscles (back, biceps, and forearms)
And during the “legs” workout, you are training the entire lower body (quads, hamstrings, glutes, calves, and abdominals)
The push/pull/legs split is ideal for both the intermediate and advanced trainees.
