The second type of 2 day split is the Push/Pull + legs split. With this workout, the body is split into pushing muscles (chest, shoulders, triceps) and pulling muscles (back, biceps). Legs are trained with pulling muscles to keep the workouts approximately the same length. Sample workouts appear in tables 6 and 7.
