Push/Pull split workouts

I'm gunna start switching up my workouts.

Has anybody had success with push/pull split days?

Push would be:
Chest
Shoulders
Legs like squats, raises
Triceps

Pull:
Bicep
Abs
Back

I think recovering from "push day" would be miserable. Also, legs are both push and pull.

Technically no muscles push. They all shorten, or pull. :-) But I get what you mean.

Seems like this method of training would not be very balanced. Push day involves most of the body, and pull day only involved a few smaller muscles groups.

Technically you COULD put DC in that category. Yrs ago I loved push/lower/pull. 2 day push/pull could be done depending on volume you used and recovery ability. Pair squat w/ ohp and bench with deads. Assistance work as you please.

Well I started the push pull yesterday.

Started out with push. My shoulders and chest were on fire and couldn't lift my arm without being sore. Woke up this morning to the surprise that my triceps were the most sore. Pull is tonight after work. I'll probably split the days up with a leg workout then a rest day.

I have never liked the push pull workout. I never feel that all the muscles have been worked to their full potential. I know many people that love it, and have had great success with it.

No bad can come of trying it for a while to see if it works for you.

I wouldn't ever only work out two days a week. That being said I do push/pull days. But not ONLY that. This is what I'm doing:
Chest/shoulders
Back
Arms
Legs
