    Is there some potential benefit to upper lower program over ppl because of the overall more rest days when runnin ppl 2x per week. Many people say you are wasting your time training more than 5 days a week, is there any merit to that? I prefer ppl having 1 or 2 rest days in the week and taking extra day off when I feel like it.

    Recently have run upper lower program since I have done ppl my whole training age. Doing supersets is fun and difficult but at the same time it limits my performance little bit.

    I love ppl but Im concerned if its worse compared to something else with either higher frequency or more overall rest days.

    Yeah makes complete sense. But lets say UL and PPL frequency and volume stay the same over the course of the week. Does UL have some advantage over PPL because of the added rest days. Assuming UL is 4x week PPL is 6x week.

    In other words, is training 6 days a week too much systemic fatigue or something like that? Paul Carter for example think it is too much. Also my PT teacher said that. Is that oversimplification on their part as its more individual?

    Yeah you are absolutely right Joe, damn why do I have to always overthink so much.. 😅 Thank you for your time, I know you both get lots of similiar questions on day to day basis. You are doing really great job with the app!
