However I'm still worried that my chosen program (Powerbuilding the Muscle and brawn Way) is not the most effective for me; yes its focused on progression and compounds, but it has me in the gym 6 days a week (which I love). But I feel an upper/lower would leave me more time for conditioning and recovery; two things I think important for a natural, skinny (with a stomach), lifter, training to look and feel good. (and be able to stay athletic, play sports for fun). For my frame, as I have read numerous times, less is more.

I don't mean to come here and ask a thousand questions; once I trust a program I'll be well on my way down the road to results--and provide a log which others (like myself) can see what worked. The biggest step for me is just sticking with something. I think about routines constantly!
The routine is rarely the key to success. Most routines will serve you well as long as they have a proven track record.

If you want to do an upper/lower then you should. As long as you have a specific progression approach going in.

Let me know if you need help picking an upper/lower.
