need help deciding how to train

Hi ive been training 4 months now doing muscle group splits every other day. Ive made excellent gains strength wise but wanna switch it up a bit. I have excess body fat im about 25% but loving lifting and going to gym. I cant decide between push..quads/pull..hammys/rest or push/pull/legs/rest or total body every other day. What will benefit me the most at moment do you guys rekon?
I wanna swith from group splits as i want to hit same muscles more then once a week.

Any help much appreciated guys

    Full body 3 times a week is always a nice switch and I get good gains from it.
     
    I only change when i stop getting good gains from a specific routine personally.
