    Upper lower or ppl

    What do you guys think about ppl splits. Better or worse than upper lower splits for hypertrophy and some strength. Any recommendations? I consider myself an upper intermediate lvl lifter.

    What do you mean by PPL splits? Like split training?

    If so I do split training because it is what my coach recommends to a lot of people and I have made a lot of good gains from it.

    PPL 100%. Upper lower is for super beginners. For intermediates it's tough to cram in the entire body in 2 days. Shoot me your email I'll send you a good ppl routine I've used and saw great results with

    Those are good numbers for your size. P/P/L allows for alittle more "specialization", upper Lower is very condensed and bare bones

    I like the methodology of that routine. Lower volume, higher frequency and progressive overload. IMO this is what EVERY intermediate should be doing. I prefer P/Pl because you have more specialized days, which means shorter workouts, and going 100% on every exercise. Squeezing in the entire upper body in one day is impossible to do without making sacrifices
