I have that article pulled up on my open tabs now. And a couple other T nation articles on PPL splits.
I want to include:
squats, front and/or back.
Bent over BB rows
Standing strict OHP
Seems deadlifts is the one I never see and don’t really know where to put it.
What I want:
Something balanced. Something that has a decent amount of volume. I enjoy spending a good bit of time in the gym.
I want to be big. Physique competitor body is what I’d love to have.
Lat pull down system
Leg extension machine (not able to lie down for hams)
Ez curl bar
~500# of weight
A couple set of dumbbells (still slowly growing this)
1 band i use for shoulder warm ups lol
Box for box jumps (I think 18”?)
Probably a few other random things.
I’m not supposed to buying more equipment, but the more expensive the longer it’ll take me to get it.
Why the PPL split appeals to me:
I like the idea of attacking a certain group of muscles very hard and having the time to let them recover while still being in the gym. That’s why I’m worried about making a balanced workout, I don’t want to be doing pull exercises on push day. I know it sounds simple and maybe it is, but I have a hard time figuring it all out and putting something together.
