Yep you speak the truth about the young youtube trolls.

I would also add that they are also extremely naive.

A six pack looks good with muscle. A six pack without muscle is just skinny.

IMO most lifters have no business even thinking about a six pack until they've spent YEARS building muscle.

5 day split is too much to me as well, especially if we're talking about 5 days in a row.

I do a four day split two days on, one day off basically.

If full body is working, then keep doing it.

I've tried several different kinds but honestly, one's just as good as another, at least in my experience.

I've tried and failed with Upper/ Lower before because I couldn't get the structure/ volume right.
