4day M-T T-F?

Wondering the best way to split the workout up through the week? Monday Tuesday Thursday-Friday was my guess but not sure if that would be best

Monday, wednesday, friday & saturday is the common way of dividing them from a weekly load perspective.

Monday Tuesday Thursday-Friday can work of course.

I'm always in a rush to follow my programming and do them the way as they are descriped most of the time.

So when i was Squating on Mondays, Benching on Wednesdays, and Deadlifting on Fridays for my last Powerlifting preparation i had big struggle with recovering from deadlifts to the coming Squat training, my back just couldnt hold the weight for the squats.
The best thing i had done at this time was to let myself recover, and took one restday more when i needed it...

So i think you should "listen to your body" and go the way you feel best in a long therm... :)

When I first started the program last year my first 24weeks , I ran it Monday , Tuesday , Rest , Thursday Friday .
There were times that I was sore as hell , from heavy squats Monday , and my deadlift suffered.
This past 15 weeks I switched it for the most part to Monday , Wednesday , Friday and Sat , and I am ALOT less fatigued or sore or whatever. Of course I have also focused on recovery a lot more ie : CBD , Sauna , more sleep etc ...

I believe that the rest day between the first two days does make a significant difference.
