Easily Adopt Best Workout Split for Muscle Gain- Push, Pull, Legs.

Get rid of that old cultural weekly bro-split workout plan, it's time to try a more effective workout split that will surely help you to gain muscles faster than that bro-split routine. 

Yes, I'm talking about a new and scientifically proven more effective workout split the PUSH-PULL-LEGS workout split. 

If you wanted to know about this split; what is it? How it is more effective and how to adopt that split then just read the article till the end. 

I'll give all the question's answers you have regarding this push-pull-legs workout split and will also tell you how you have to perform it in your gym for gaining muscles faster. 

So let's start from scratch - 

Bro Split Vs PPL split - 

Intro-

PPL is a way to organise your workouts including all your body parts, weekly. It is different from bro-split because its target every body part twice a week rather than targeting it only once a week as we do in the bro-split routine. 

Push-pull-legs workout Benefits - 

1) As I say it targets all the body parts two times in a week that's why it is more effective for gaining muscles than your bro-split. 

Let me tell you why our body takes a maximum of 48 hrs. To recover after working out and when you do BRO-SPLIT and target your body part only once in a week then it gets recover in 48 hrs. And after that, it doesn't get any work the whole week even though it is ready for it. 

And when you perform your workout according to PPL split you can hit that body part again just after it got recover after 48hrs.

2) In bro-split we target only one muscle a day and we get tired after performing three workouts of the same body part and we can't perform rest workouts on the same power and energy. 

But in PPL-Split you target three body parts a day where you perform 2 workouts for each body part and you will be able to hit all these workouts with the same energy and power because you hit various body parts.
