guess it has been discussed in absurdum, but i have been doing stronlifts 3 times a week. Now i ant a program with more upper body focus, and can lift around 4 times a week. Is an upper/lower split a good idea?

Try it! I've been doing an upper/lower split for the past 2-3 months and gotten good results. It's all about how your build your program/your goals.

Upper / Lower is good.

 

You could also continue with 3 fullbody sessions like Stronglifts and add another upper only day, which is what I'm doing atm. So I go through lower 3 times and upper 4 times a week.

 

I'm probably gonna catch some flack for this, but I think if you've adapted to working a body part/movement with a certain frequency, it would not make as much sense to reduce that frequency as to keep it with modifications. I mean, if you've done well in terms of recovery on strenuous full body workouts like Stronglifts, but want more upper development, you could just add more upper work without reducing the work for everything else (like legs for instance).

 

That's just my 2 cents and a good upper/lower can also get you great results.

 

Edit: Thinking of it, your ratio between your upper and lower muscle development would theoretically not change with a upper/lower split since you still only work your upper just as much as your lower body. You will need to work your upper body more than the lower if its going to catch up.

Could just do Push, pull, legs 4 days a week. That's about what i'm doing until exams are over. I'd rather do 6 days, but I don't have the time. Can do a bit of upper body work on leg days, I always do overhead press.

in other news, running still sucks balls. i really feel for people who say they just cant motivate themselves to exercise... it regularly takes everything i have to get up and at it first thing in the morning. i will also echo that running is fucking atrocious for one's physique; i've managed to become slightly less skinny-fat while mostly losing whatever size i had left. really makes me lol to think about running/jogging/etc being the go-to recommendation for fitness... great way to look like shit. i have committed myself to a 10k run in august though, so 4x/week running until then. i've made decent progress with my times thus far, but god help me.

 

Have you given this a look?

 

About running:

Completely agree. I hate it. It just hurts and makes me stiff so my lifting gets worse.

There was this "city run get together" or whatever a week ago. You could tell who was a good runner but their physique also had me questioning why people view running as the standard way to get fit.

Alright, so with my new schedule, my 4 day bodybuilding split just ain't gonna work.

I want to make the switch to push/pull/legs. Keep in mind I am trying to cut.

I can afford to be in the gym 3x a week, an hour workouts.

What would you guys suggest?

Rear delt flies. @MarkL got some "bat wing" exercise or something from @tesseract. Both speak highly if it and a video was posted within the last week.

Bent over lateral raises are one of my favorites. Gotta use dem baby pink dumbbells though.

Any type of rowing movement is also going to engage the rear delts.

If you can afford to workout 3 times a week, I'd do full body workouts with high volume instead. 3x frequency has just worked better for me than once or twice a week.

 

Not Stronglifts or SS. More presses and rowing. Supersets and the like so you get in more hypertrophy and volume with only 3 sessions without having to lift for 3 hours a time.

 

I can link some good one's my coach has made public. They're sort of geared towards Powerlifting but you said you wanted to get into that. They should also work just fine for BBing with maybe some minor tweaks. 

 

Otherwise, I'd look into ICF 5x5. That will get you results, both in terms of strength and size, no doubt about it. I made great progress on it and so did one of Easons friends.
