If your goal is a larger weightloss, I'd recommend a less aggressive program, like All Pros. Pretty simple program you can do with your equipment.

Hey viking, 2 questions:
1- Im doing the 5 day routine. Straight-arm pulldowns destroy my shoulders (same with pullovers). I get some painful popping and cracking during the movement. I also heard they are mechanically inefficient at targeting lats and they are almost useless for many. Can I just drop these altogether or at least replace them with another pulling exercise like shrugs or something? So straight-arm pulldown/rear-delt fly -> shrug/rear-delt fly
2- Couldn't someone just use your upper workouts from your 4 day routine in combination with the PPL workouts? EG. Upper day 1/Lower /PPL. I know the lower days are repeated in the 5 day version.

Hi, just wanted to say thanks been running the upper lower split for about 5/6weeks now and really enjoying it and making good progress on some lifts.
One question ref the deadlifts could you split these into 3sets? and aim for 12-15 reps? these are by far my strongest lift and just a bit cautious of aiming for 6-7reps a set on 200+ KG

This was prolly addressed already but I can't find it so I'll ask again:
When should we switch from upper/lower split to upper/lower/push/pull/legs?
I've had some decent strength and size gains, but feel like I might be hitting plateau especially on bench. My lifts aren't very impressive at all but they're much better then where I started.
I've been running the upper/lower for almost 2months now

Very tempted to run this program once I finish my cut next month.
Two questions (apologies if they've been covered).
1. Would a seated Cable Row, Wide-Grip, be an acceptable substitute for a bent over barbell row?
2. Is there any protocol for resets with the weights? i.e. if I hit a 'plateau', do I reset or keep plugging away until I hit my rep target?
