    It’s probably the most working out a natty can do before diminishing returns.

    So if your a nattycuck yeah it’s okay.

    >linear progression by 2.5/5kg
    I never understood that. Is it expected to make these increments every week?? I’m either doing something wrong but this sort of increase seems feasible maybe in the first 2-3 mos of lifting till the newb gains won’t deplete. I’m doing a PPL (coolcicada) and got stuck at the same weight for the 2.5 weeks. Maybe I’m not eating or sleeping enough idk

      Yes.
      You can get linear progression, with occasional deload periods when tired, for years.

      t. lifting over a decade

      I have never heard of this but it doesn't look offensive. Any program, with consistency and proper diet and sleep will produce gains.
      6 days a week for a novice seems overboard and maybe a little unrealistic, only because the trivialities of life may get in the way.

      With no life obligations this looks like it should produce results.

        Calling bs.
        >52 weeks in a year
        >2.5kg weekly linear progression
        >52x2.5kg = 130kg yearly bench progression
        You probably see how ridiculous it is

          You’d be benching over 1300kg if you’ve been lifting for over a decade at this rate. Assuming you’ve started from 0kg.

    Personally prefer PPL/UL, 6 days a week in the gym is too much for me. Especially if you're in a commerical gym and have to suffer post 5pm rush.

    Never liked deadlift on a pull day either, most people move it to leg day. A lot of people who do PPL also bullshit about 2 leg days a week and often do only one or even zero lmao

      I do ULULUxx.

      2x leg days are enough for me and I'm no longer at the point in my life where I am trying to increase strength consistently.
      Just maintain strength and increase endurance.

        U/L is a more enjoyable routine to me personally. You do one "heavy" exercise per body part, one more focused on contraction, hit everything and leave the gym after like 90-100minutes. If you're not feeling it this week you can go ULU, which is only 3 days while still exercising a lot.

        With PPL you're out of the gym in like 50 minutes yet have to go every day. It feels like you missed something constantly

          Can you guys post some good UL routines? I want to exercise 5 day a week monday to friday. I'm not a beginner but I wouldn't say I'm advanced either. I am disciplined though. Previously I did fullbody workout 3 times a week, want to change things a little bit and grow more.

            PHUL is basically a staple of U/L routines. You can change it for yourself with exercise for the same muscle you enjoy more. The key is basically that you build each day around a couple of compound exercises that you do with higher weight and lower reps, the other compounds you replace with accessories for that muscle and do them with lower weight/higher reps and you switch them depending on each day.

            So, one day it's heavy ohp and dumbell bench press, the other day it's barbell bench press and lateral raises. And with lower it's even easier - one day is built around quads(heavy squat movement), other harmstring(heavy DL).

    It'll work until it doesn't
    Do that until you stall then do something else. I recommend DC training

      Doesn't take 2 hours at all?

      Let's take PULL day

      Deadlift/Row = this one might take like 30 minutes cause it's heavy
      Pullips 3x8=10minutes with 3 minute rest
      Cable Row 3x8=like 8 minutes? You shoudn't rest for longer than 2 minutes on those
      5x15 Face Pull=should be like a minute rest between each, so let's say 8 minutes again
      8 sets of curls = 15 minutes
      so 30+10+8+8+15=71 minutes, that was close to my average workout on PPL. If anything, short workouts is the reason i'm not a fan of routine, i'd rather go less often, but for longer.

    If I go from PPL to UL will I regress?

      How long have you been lifting? If you are beginner you’ll make more progress on UL.

      Doesn't work like that. Both routines are fine, going to the gym more often doesn't equal more gains.

      With more rest days you might be able to recover better, sleep and rest more and push yourself in the gym harder, leading to better gains. You might just also enjoy it more, PPL as a routine requires a lot of dedication and people often burn out and stop going at all

        PHUL is good and you can modify it a bit for your needs. Lower Hypertrophy day is absolutely brutal though - a ton of exercises for 4 sets, i stick to a much simpler formula with leg day - one squat movement, one hip hinge movement, single leg exercise, curls once a week, calves. Covers EVERYTHING and doesn't make you wanna have a nice day/skip it. Applies to PPL as well.
