@max12480 I've ran tonnes of different programs and loads of ppl variations but PERSONALLY more frequency and relative high volume is best for growth.
If ur only working out 3times a week. i'd squat 2-3times, deadlift 1-2 (Second being a variation at least) and bench 3times.. then fill accesories with plenty of back work.. fuck around with arms if u want with more emphasis on triceps.

@max12480 yes I think you're overthinking the "routine". Better to pick something that you can do consistently.

StrongLifts seems like the workload would be significantly less than other alternatives you posted... Not sure why you would switch unless you wanted something more advanced.

its more of a mental thing. I just wasnt into the 3 times a week frequency full body style, i would of never known unless i tried though. i feel like i work harder when there is more of a split up of exercises

Tend to agree. Were you not into it or did you have tendon issues?

Seems like you're too concerned with your routine. There is no magical one. Pick something balanced and run it for a year without changing it. Profit. -3X

to be honest with you i think thats why i am not into it, because it seems to wear on me more and then i dont put full effort into it. i am going to to an upper lower so it gives me more time in between workouts

@max12480 I think you don't like Stronglifts because it's pretty much the big 3 compound lifts and you don't put up big numbers. That's why i'd stick with Stronglifts. As your numbers go up, it'll get more fun. Trust me, I'm doing the Russian Squat Program now which is pretty boring, but at the same time it's great because every six weeks my numbers have been going up. Patience is key.
