this was more or less the variant I ran. few different ways but the premise is volume day, light day and heavy day each week for squats, bench and presses follow similar format but alternated so have one of those sessions every two weeks.

workload on volume allows you to up your 5RM each week which should then allow increases on volume day. Madcow is pretty much the same but simplified to fit in one week for all lifts. deadlifts low volume and squats should push it up

I've always opted for upper/lower twice weekly as it seems the majority of science based tests on naturals say higher frequency/volume broken down over the week is optimal, well 2 to 3x.. above thats there seems to be no benefit.

Although I do miss the added 'pump' from a push day! And I too feel I don't get enough in per muscle group but volume wise it still adds up at the end of the week..

That would be the ideal split for me.. 2 x a week but split muscle groups. I only manage 3 days max a week at gym so i just hit Upper/lower

If I could only do 3 times a week I'd just do 3 full body workouts personally
