Push Pull Exercises for a Solid Split Routine

Push Pull Exercises for a Solid Split Routine

A push/pull workout involves splitting your workout days into ‘pulling’ exercises and ‘pushing exercises.’ Splitting the two movement types results in routine that means hitting the gym more frequently and taking a balanced approach to your training.

If you’ve been curling hard, it might be time to give your other muscle groups some love with a push/pull training routine. Let’s begin.

How does pull/pull work in practice?

Unless otherwise specified, aim for 5 sets of 12-15 reps per exercise. It’s recommended to split this workout plan over three days, with a day’s rest in between.

Chest and Back Day

Legs and Core Day

Arms and Shoulder Day
