    Which of the two upper lower programs are better? Your better half vs. Bryces Upper Lower 2.0?

    I plan on transitioning to a 4-5 day program due to my own schedule. My physique is in between beginner and intermediate I think. But my main goal is to just get big as efficiently as possible.

    What’s the pros and cons between the two?

    From what I notice, Your better half has you doing the same movements twice in the week to get better at the movement.
    Whereas bryces upper lower 2.0 has you doing different ones depending if it’s a “A” or “B” day. I’m assuming the A/B programming is a much newer style of training so perhaps people on this app should look at Bryces?

    I’m sure none of this matters and both will make you grow no matter what, but for efficiency and what could be more effective, what would be the choice between the two from now on?

    Also for these upper lower programs, can you switch it to where we start off with lower instead upper? I also notice that Bryces has less of an arm focus where Your better half has you doing two arm exercises for biceps and triceps being the dips, hammer curls, tricep extensions, and bicep curls. Bryces has 1 exercise for the bicep and tricep at the end and it looks like a chest and back isolation focus such as the flys and pullovers are in place of the reduced arm focus. With looking at this, maybe bryces would work better for me to work on overall body size as opposed to putting more time to do arm work. I guess you can argue big arms could give off a the perception that you are bigger, but what are your guys thoughts on my thought process?

    Also a question for the Your better half program. Since you repeat the exercise a second time in the week, do you lift the same numbers from the previous workout?or do you treat it as it’s own day in the week and progress weekly as opposed to progressing each session if that makes sense

    Hi Kirt.
    I did the same, I did the push pull lower program but I felt the 6 days caught up with me in the end and week after week I felt like I was chasing my arse and getting stressed for trying to make the gym when my schedule got tight with time so I’ve gone for more of a flexible approach with Bryce’s upper/lower program and hitting all body parts twice a week over the 4 days. (On my off days I’ll go on my bike for 20-30mins for health benefits and stick to my 10k steps a day) but this program seems ok. Just dreading hitting legs twice a week as I wanted only one leg day tbh. But tbh I’m gonna stick with it, I’ve started on week 5 with the drop sets etc, and tbh I am kinda looking forward to having more of a flexible approach and not always feel like I’m in the gym which sometimes feels like a choir and you kinda find yourself losing that enjoyment if you are working all the time and then having to push yourself to go to the gym rather than wanting to go to the gym because your program is telling you to if that makes sense. The 4 day split will bring you more flexibility and probably give you more recovery and rest time as well. 👍🏽
