I've done split routines (mostly in the summer) where I work out in the AM and then again in the PM

Basically

Push in the AM
Pull in the PM

Example I have down Quads in the AM and Hams in the PM, Chest in the AM, Back in the PM etc etc

I do a M, T, Th, F split.

Monday: Heavy upper, multi-joint, lower reps (4-8)
Tuesday: Single leg, higher rep (single leg press, lunge, step ups, leg extension, and split squat)

Thursday: Higher rep upper, more single joint (10-14 reps)
Friday: Lower, heavy weight, low reps (4-8) Squats, sldl, ham curls.

I've grown more with this, than any other, but do find I have to change after about 5 weeks, as I get exhausted.

I do a split called "feel like, don't like"

On one day I do what I "feel like" doing and then the next day I do what I "don't like."

I like to train 4 times a week, so I fit whatever split I'm using at the time, to fit into 4 days. I change it up frequently, but always work-in squats, deads, and bench presses, in some way. I've also done full-body, 3 times a week. I've found, like most of you, that everything works for a while, but nothing works forever!

Right now I am doing an upper/lower split on M, T, Th, F heavy weight lower reps for most of my compound exercises. I'll do this for about 4 to 6 weeks then I'll switch it to a BP split (same workout days) with higher reps. Upper/lower seems to give me the best gains though.

When I design a split routine it usual is a four day split. I just make sure the four days cover these basic motions:

- Squat
- Deadlift
- Lunge
- Horizontal Push
- Horizontal Pull
- Vertical Push
- Vertical Pull
- Abs

Exercise selection is always compound first and then isolation.

I wondered about that, b/c I figured you knew enough about splits.

I used to split my training and do morning weights/night cardio, but haven't done that in a long time.

Same day split is a good way to overtrain. I tried that for a few weeks and it really screwed me up. I was always tired and weak.
