Is PPL the best I want to graduate to six days a week?

I started with reg parks beginner's 5x5 and I did it for about half a year, then I did a 4 day a week conjugate powerlifter plan for two months, it had a lot of variety with lots of weird squat variations that I hated, the only part I liked were pin presses. Also not enough shoulder work like OHP or lateral raises.
I want to go 6 days a week now. Can someone reccomend me a routine that is fairly evenly split between hyperthrophy and strength?

    yeah bro if you want a weird body with small arms and shoulders compared to your size you should go for PPL

    If you are sure about wanting a weird unproportional body, definitely steer clear from a ULA program

          Reccomend one then.

          You’re thinking too much about it. If you are still making progress, changing program is dumb. Why do you think six months is enough to make you intermediate? Stop listening to IST so much.

          I stopped making progress with it though, it just doesn't have enought chest.

            Actually would it be fine if I changed to a program that's a derivitive of it like madcow or something?

            You do understand that, as a percentage of your body’s total musculature, your chest is less significant than you think. That simply means it takes less time to work it effectively. That said, you’ve only been working out for six months so most likely you aren’t eating enough or pushing hard enough. Post macros and calories methinks.

            Have fun wasting your energy on muscles that nobody notices.

            >lifting for other people
            You’re a fricking simpleton, enjoy shitty posture, having a shitty physique and having issues with your flexors.

              2500kcal 150g protein daily, I'm a fat bastard on a diet but I still try to get an okay amount of protein in.
              Also the thing with reg parks is that it only hits chest an average of 1.5x a week which I think is too little.

                having a big chest is important though in my community. My priorities are a big chest and a big bum

                If you’re a fat bastard, why are you concerning yourself with hardly visible pec muscles and not with getting more protein in? I believe you alternate OHP and bench btw which means you do hit chest 3x a week which is plenty of frequency, especially for a beginner. Also, you can reach a point of diminishing returns where you won’t recover properly and therefore not make the gains you want. If you have the patience, you will go back to your Reg Park program and you will like it.

                I noticed that as my pecs progress my manbreasts seem to get smaller and less saggy and they are my main insecurity.

    >program hopping
    This is why you aren’t making the gains you want, you clown. You should have stuck to your original plan until you could no longer make progress. You’re always going to look like how you eat, so you’re being a fricking idiot by thinking you have to be going to the gym six days a week to get the look you want.

      I just like going to the gym though. You're saying I should go back to reg parks then?

        Yes, because I’m also assuming you’re just starting out. You don’t make gains by being in the gym, you make your gains at rest. You need to eat right and train very hard, not just arbitrarily hopping programs. Too many people can’t warm up with bodyweight bench press and think they need to “specialise”.

          Reg parks begginer 5x5 is labelled as a beginner program though so I thought you needed to graduate from it after like half a year.

    I used to do PPL until I realized that spending 1/3 of my time on legs was just stupid.

    Nobody cares about your legs.

      Go look at Deontay Wilder and tell me it looks normal to have a good upper body and no legs, you utter spastic. Please learn how proportions work and then try not to have a nice day squatting lmao 1pl8 you stupid DYEL. Post body immediately.

        this, plus just like in Tariqs post, Deontay was buck broken before a crowd by an enormous white man.

    Depends on your age and years trained.
    I don't think people over 30 should run ppl because their recovery takes a little longer and running such a tight split can frick them up.
    I also don't think people with less than 2 years training should jump down to lower frequency work until they've at least plateaued pretty hard and need to bump up volume and drop frequency to progress. From plateauing there brosplits or a sub-2 a week frequency routine is the next kind of benchmark.
