For the gym bros, which one of these do you run and why?

I first hit the gym right after high school on and off, but didn't stick with it. Over the pandemic I had a medical issue and a back injury which caused significant weight loss. Following that I got myself back in shape and to a healthy weight and have been consistent ever since. I did a weighted calisthenics routine for about 5 months with some added compound lifts in there (Bench,Bent row, deadlift/squat, ohp) and saw great results and can now do a planche with paralettes.

Now I'm focused on putting on some mass and getting heavy up on my core lifts. I moved into a PPL routine, but just didn't dig it. Felt odd to not hit more muscles groups since I was so used to full body work and don't think I 'need' ppl yet. I went on to full body 3x a week following a 5x5 not to dissimilar to strong lifts. That said I'm considering doing an upper lower split which I've not done before. I feel like that might be a good middle ground? I'd rather get in the gym more as I find it therapeutic and I currently recover really fast.

Do whatever feels best and is most enjoyable and sustainable for you long term. I don't really think routines matter that much, what matters more is consistency and what you do outside of the gym.

PPL 6x per week resting Saturdays, because it fits my lifestyle/needs.

My consistency has been great, I've become completely addicted to lifting like I used to running. Diet is a challenge for me and I have to force feed to get in my calories. I'm one of those guys that is constantly lean and was a rail as a kid
