Split's just encourage people to do the "trophy" lifts, like bicep curls or something. They encourage people to throw in crappy exercises that do **** all.
All the compounds, 3 times a week. Sorted!
You deadlift 3 times a week?
Bodybuilding splits, absolute waste of time? Watch

That works well when you first start, like when I started 3 years ago I was benching a measly 30KG over the first 4 months I progressed to 50-60KG (doing reps mostly because of the balance issue) the same happened with squats I started just doing 40KG over the first 4 months it increased to 100KG after that period then the increase dropped very quickly to maybe only being able to add an extra 5-10kg a week maximum and on average probably just 2.5kg especially now when I bench it's a much lower increase and I tend to increase month by month rather than week by week now.
Adding and Progressing with 2.5kg plates every week / fortnight / month only last a while aswell. If it didn't everyone would have 500kg-1000kg benches.
