What is a good split for the gym as a soccer player?

I am a soccer player in my sophomore year and started going to the gym around 2-3 months ago and have seen significant progress in both my physique and my overall strength. I have been doing a 3 day split of legs, arm, and chest and back. I was wondering if I should make any changes to the split I am doing currently

Hi Asher! I have been going to the gym for around 8 years now and have had a variety of workout routines. When I was younger, I played football so I trained mainly for strength, but as I got older, I shifted more towards endurance while maintaining my strength.

What I have learned is that the best workout plan for you depends on your body and the time you have to work out. If you are seeing results from your current split, I highly recommend sticking to it. If you would like to go to the gym more, you could always increase your frequency from 3 to 6 days.

One alternative splits I have found to be effective are push/pull/legs. Push days you work your chest and triceps, Pull days you work your back and biceps and leg days are leg days! In this split I sprinkle in shoulder work outs throughout the week where applicable (presses on push day, raises on pull day). This split focuses on efficiency as the workout trains all related muscle groups together!

I hope this helps!
