Right, that's why I paused from giving any actual feedback. I don't think your split is wrong, and I actually think it keeps the workouts interesting.it's weird. usually I see ppl or upper lower not a combo. doesn't make it wrong though, we'll see.
I've run this split, an Upper/Lower/P/P/L many times. In fact, it would be my favorite if I knew I could get to the gym 5 days per week, and didn't work 60-70 hours per week.it's weird. usually I see ppl or upper lower not a combo. doesn't make it wrong though, we'll see.
6 years ago I started with stronglifts 5x5 app. I'd never lifted before. At 6 months I move onto 5/3/1. I have run that ever since.I would just find a percentage based program for the compound lift on each day and run with it. Say 5/3/1, Cube, 5th set etc. Stick with the tried and true methods they work and the BS about we are different is dumb as hell. 90% of us are the same. The 10% have no issue with making progress with what ever they do. The programs I listed have been so popular because they work for the majority
They seem to all be following close to the same approach these days. I have been trying to do it as well. PPL type splits and top sets with back of sets. Then periodically throwing in intensifiers when their trying to increase metabolic rate. I stole Hunter Labradas split and I love it 2-3 weeks in. There is a YouTube video with an awesome explanation and in the description it has the whole thing laid out.6 years ago I started with stronglifts 5x5 app. I'd never lifted before.

You are right it works current 1rm's squat 510, bench 370, deadlift 600.
Sets of 5's 3's and singles are not how the training is set up, for the physique I'm after.
No more powerlifting style training I want to look like a bodybuilder and train like one. (at least how I think they train based on youtube)
As you know I hurt myself, low reps heavy weight. Time to change it up.
