It’s not that great if you don’t have the discipline to not do too much on it. If optimal growth is 40-70 reps 2x a week those upper workouts should be pretty short and there’s no reason it can’t be done in one workout unless you need shorter workouts more often. 6 Days a week can also make juggling a personal life with work or school hard.

So there is no real advantage of doing PPL compared to Upper Lower? Since Upper lower have enough volume ? So bascially PPL is only to have shorter workouts and more days of lifting instead of less lifting days and longer workouts? That's the main difference? No real difference on the gains you are gonna make ?

One isnt beter than the other just a matter of adherence and preference.

If for my leg workout, can I keep it simple? Or it's not effective?

For example if I do :

Squat 4x6-8 , Leg extensions 3x10-12, Leg Curls 3x10-12 , some calves and abs exercices

Is that good ? Or I should do other things like Lunges, RDL, Good mornings, Leg press etc..

Either is fine. I prefer fewer things done well.

SOOOOOOO MUCH TEXT...

OVERTHINKING

Looks too complicated; if you're a noob, which you obviously are, just do Lyle's generic bulking programme or something for a few months.

JUST GET STRONGER ON A FEW KEY LIFTS (E.G. BENCH, SQUAT, WEIGHTED CHINS). When you've gotten beyond your beginner gains, most of your mass gains will link back to strength gains.

I'd stick with the 4 day GBR or something similar and only add in the 5th day when your recovery and/or volume requires it or if you just prefer shorter workouts I suppose.

I've ran a similar setup before and you're right. The Push and Pull workouts only took around 40-45 minutes to complete.
