6-Day Split Recommendations

#1

Anyone have any 6-day splits/training programs that they are currently using or recommend? I’m currently doing a 6-day split that is Push on Monday/Thursday, Legs on Tuesday/Friday, Pull on Wednesday/Saturday, with Sundays off. However, I don’t really have a set routine of exercises that I do beyond the main ones (squat, bench, deadlift). I’m starting a lean bulk on Monday and just wanted to switch it up a bit and maybe start following a more strict lifting program to ensure I’m adding a good amount of muscle rather than fat. I’m pretty good at tracking macros, just want to make sure I’m dialed in on my gym routine.

#5

Any thoughts on training early in the morning on an empty stomach when doing a lean bulk? I like to workout before work and usually don’t eat anything beforehand, just preworkout and some BCAAs during the workout. I definitely make sure to get a protein shake in almost immediately post workout though.

When I’m doing P/P/L, I just give up on keeping it oriented to calendar weeks and do P/P/L/R -> Repeat
