    Well you could take your current program and just institute that for your compounds and then double progression on isolation movements.

    I was mainly just curious on why you disliked them.

    I’m not for/against. I think it’s pretty individual.

    my point is that the 4 day routine you’re referencing by Eric helms adds weight workout to workout.

    Why don’t you just do an upper lower split then 6x , a week then?

    Also unless you need to be pressing and pulling 4x a week I’m not sure it’s the most ideal way.

    Eventually you’ll need to spread the volume out, so eventually an upper/lower split will probably be better.

    Yeah the app I use has a bunch of versions.

    They are parallel bars, and I lean forward a bit more when emphasizing chest.
