Default Moving to shorter workouts

Currently doing upper/lower each 2x per week following Alberto Nunez's Beyond the Basics template (pretty similar to GBR, but with heavier days followed by volume days later in the week). My local gym is closing, so I might have to move to shorter workouts 45-60 minutes in length per session. I can train up to 7 days per week. Any split or program suggestions to set something like this up without risking overtraining or burning out?

Could do a push-pull-legs 2x/week type of split (6 days total) where push day is just bench, OHP, and an accessory or two, pull is row/weighted chins and couple accessories, and legs is one day deadlift, one day squat and a couple accessories. Keep the accessory work light. Should be easily under an hour

Helms has an lower/upper/lower/push/pull template in his book. I might just take the lower/push/pull part and do it twice. I'd really prefer to lift 4-5x per week though. 6-7 might make me hate the gym.

In another thread I posted how I am dealing with a time constraint that allows for no more than 60 minutes per session. Basically, I started with my upper/lower split that I was doing twice per week (4 weekly sessions total), took tris/bis from the upper day and abs/calves from the lower day, and combined them together to make an extra session done twice per week. This extra session is much less demanding than the upper or lower days, so it is not as difficult a schedule as might appear at first glance. By the way, my volume remained exactly the same.

So, I went from:
U, L, rest, U, L, rest, rest
to:
U, L, arms/abs/calves, U, L, arms/abs/calves, rest.

Main site, it's always on the main site. Lyle has an article worth checking on out training 6 days per week so you can get in shorter workouts.

Hi OP, would you mind giving us a review/quick overview of Alberto's program more than you've already stated out of curiosity, and what you felt about it?
I really like 3DMJ's stuff and hear he doesn't have squats in it also. His page is pretty sparse with info about it too. :-) Thx
