    If those are the only days you can hit the gym, then I'd do this:

    A push/pull/legs split because it is divided up according to function and hence it is the most logical way of doing things. The training would look like this:

    Week 1
    Mon: Push
    Tue: Legs
    Thur: Pull
    Fri: Push

    Week 2
    Mon: Legs
    Tue: Pull
    Thurs: Push
    Fri: Legs

    And so forth....
    Strength + Speed = Power

    If you never fail, you aren't truly pushing yourself to the limit. If you never push yourself to the limit, how do you know what you're truly capable of?

    As long as theyr'es enough recovery involved(taking days off,sleeping adequetely,enabling optimized recovery from proper nourishment),theyr'es little science involved.Pretty straight forward and basically something you can instinctively sense from within.

    Lately,i've been generally cruising along and feeling quite satisfied with alternating heavier and lighter for specific muscles.

    monday-Light chest & light triceps(pushups & bw tricep dips)
    tuesday-Light back & light biceps(bw pullups & 35-40 lb db curls)
    wednesday-Off
    thursday-Heavy chest & heavy tri's(Chest dips,One handed pushups,and weighted tri dips)
    friday-Off
    saturday-Heavy Back & biceps(Db Rows,one handed pullups,& 50-60 lb db curls
    sunday-off

    Note:For myself,Legs are worked naturally through regular bicycling and recreational activity.

    I used to try and use the bodybuilding approach to leg training but eventually realized that i simply do not consume enough calories or protein to enable big leg growth from big leg training.

    I like legs/abs, chest/bi, back/trap, shoulders/tri split ups and put smaller muscle groups where u want or use my idea.. Usually DL on back day but thats up to you..

    I feel the usually upper/lower split isnt the way to go. Too much leg work not really enough upper body. This is how it worked out for me. Also, since you train lats with upper and then posterior chain with lower you might overtrain or limit gains in the low body.

    Maybe this if you want 2x a week

    M upper (staying away from low back usage)
    Tu lower
    Th chest/sh/tri
    Fr some legs (for example deadlift) + back/bi

    These are some realizations i've come to recently

    That statement is so messed up for so many reasons:

    1) Have you not considered increasing your calorie/protein intake?

    2) If your calorie/protein intake is limited by financial factors, then how come you have decided that of all the muscle groups in your body, the one you're going to ignore is legs?

    3) So what if you're not eating enough for big leg growth. You can still squat and gain some strength and size even if it is not big.
    Strength + Speed = Power

    If you never fail, you aren't truly pushing yourself to the limit. If you never push yourself to the limit, how do you know what you're truly capable of?

    Leg training is hard. It's hilarious the excuses people use.
