Yeah, I've had success with UD2 as well. If I'm not mistaken, in UD2 he advises to use CKD if above ~12% bodyfat. I figured to use CKD to jump stat my program and then shift into UD2. I like UD2. I feel like it is a maintainable lifestyle for me.
All that said, I'm still off of all upper body workouts for the next 6 weeks minimum as my shoulder recovers from an impingement issue. It has plagued me on and off for 10 years, so I'm not messing around with jumping back in too early.
