    Need some help clearing up about PPL

    So I followed a 3 day variant of PPL with some added accessory exercises. It's not feasible for my schedule to go 6 days a week to the gym so I went with that.

    After inquiring around r/fitness/ on reddit though, I found out most people say things like "3 days is too lacking for PPL, do 6 days instead. And it made me realize I've probably been doing it wrong for the past 3 months. I tried ICF 5x5 before but a lot of people say to move on from it after 3 months or so.

    I'm stuck if I should change my workout routine or not. I'm getting information overload by reading too much in here and in r/fitness/.

    I could adjust my gym times to 4 days a week. Been also reading about PHUL or something, dunno if I should move to that.

    I wouldn't do a PPL over 3 days either because it means that you are only training each bodypart once only - you don't need 7 days in between training a muscle - it's a lot of wasted time.

    Take the same volume and spread it out into 3 x full body routines or alternate upper/lower

    There is also the high frequency PPL:

    1. Pull, push
    2. Legs, pull
    3. Push, legs

    There's no need to stay locked into a 7-day week. Just adjust based on how many days a week you can train:

    4-days: Push / Rest / Pull / Rest / Legs / Rest / Push (then just keep repeating)
