    It's only a few weeks your body will love the change, I did a push/pull and legs over 3 days and had good success with it. Good luck!

    right: you can do a push/pull and then a separate leg day.....

    if you do that, do the PULL FIRST, on the Friday, as, lat and biceps do not tend to get as sore as delts and triceps, and the Delts are really involved in almost anything.....

    good sched would be PULL FRIDAY, LEGS SAT, and then CHEST, DELT, ARM on Sunday.....

    it will work!!
    Lift as MUCH as you can, for as MANY reps as you can,
    while in complete control of the exercise.

    This sounds like a good plan to me. Only other option would be to sacrifice sleep/rest a day or two on work days and workout anyway. I've done that before working those kind of hours, but it sucks. Barely worth it because you're sacrificing recovery sleep. If it's only 2-3 weeks, I think John's probably got it right. For me, I'd have to switch the legs and chest/delt/arms days because I'm hooked on deadlifts on pull days and I wouldn't want to do deads and squats back to back.

    I don't get it, why can't you train after work? You get out mad early.

    I only train 3 days a week. (all the time, not just on a temp basis)

    If you train hard, and select big compounds, it will be plenty of stimulation to grow. (read: squats, deads, OHP, rows, bench....etc). Let the isolation movements fall by the wayside....you wont miss them if you attack the big parts hard enough.
