Exclamation 5X5 Dilemma

came across some new info today about training frequency and how often you should train each body part a week.
Im now wondering weather I should switch to a full body 3 times a week 5x5, or stick with my push/pul/legs 5x5 split.

Studies show that the average muscle repairs within 48 hours, therefor in theory i'd be recruiting more muscle fibers if I switched to doing full body, 3 times a week.
I'd be leaving 48 hours rest before I trained the muscle group again, as apposed to leaving an entire weak before I hit the same muscle group again with my current split.

How do I determine which to stick with?
It looks like I could be producing more muscle gains if I train more frequently in the week but I'm not sure.
Should I train if I'm still sore?
