    Joe, sorry to split hairs here, and I appreciate all your help- I just want to make sure this of this last question. I want to set this up right so my workouts are optimal and so my elbow doesn’t get even more messed up.

    You helped me in my other posts about setting up my 5 day on 2 day off split. I explained that I want to workout on week days, take weekends off, and that due to my tendinitis (torn tendons in my elbow off mri) I find it better to not train upper body muscle groups 2 days in a row, so I have to put an off or leg day in between. So, you said the split I suggested prior is okay, I wanted to also ask if you think a different type would be better. Out of the two below, which do you think would be better? (Or does it really not matter?) option 1 is what we discussed before. Option 2 would be rotating weeks where week 1 has 2 push days 2 leg days and 1 pull day and week 2 has 2 pull days, 2 legs days and 1 push days, and the weeks keep rotating..

    Option 1
    Push + 3 sets biceps
    Legs
    Pull
    Legs
    Push * 3 sets back
    Off
    Off

    Option 2 Week 1:
    Push
    Legs
    Pull
    Legs
    Push
    Off
    Off

    Week 2:
    Pull
    Legs
    Push
    Legs
    Pull

    Week 3: repeat week 1
    Week 4: repeat week 2

    Again- notice week 1 has 2 push days, 2 legs and 1 pull day
    And
    Week 2 has 2 pull days, 2 legs, and 1 push and they rotate
