What does your lifting split look like?

Do you do a push/pull split? Upper/lower split? 5 day different bodypart split? Or something different?

I've seen members have results acheived by all of the above and am just wondering what's your split look like?
Success is only defined as getting up one more time than you've been knocked down.
It’s not about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward…

MON: SQUATS
TUE: BENCH
WED: DL or DL VARIATION
THU: REST
FRI: LEGS w SQUAT VARIATION
SAT: CHEST w BENCH VARIATION
SUN: ASSISTANCE & ANCILLARY WORK

I rotate that training cycle like this:

WEEK 1: Light (working at 70% max)
WEEK 2: Medium (working at 80% max)
WEEK 3: Heavy (working at 90-100% max)
WEEK 4: Deload

I also take a full week off the gym every 12 weeks or so, just to allow my CNS to recover and allow my immune function and other systems to come back up.
