what about p/l - some programmes bring up one lift, most concentrate on all 3?

Any thoughts? specialise or not?

Folks have done both. One thing about PL is that squatting tends to support DL'ing so, in some ways at least you don't really have to bring up all three. If you build your squat and put in some DL practice, DL will often go up without having to train it quite as heavily.

Another question, my friend and I are doing a Pec/Bicep/Quad specialization and we started discussing the next body parts. He strained a hamstring a couple months ago and is paranoid about making our next cycle back/calves/ham and wants to do back/shoulders/calves. Doing back and the rest of upper body on MON and Shoulders/Calves with lower on Tues and so forth. Opinions?

I don't understand what you're asking.

I am asking if it is okay to do two upper body parts as the primary parts worked on. In your sticky, it says upper and lower. Would it be retarded to do Back/Shoulders/Calves and maintain everything else? That is what I am asking, sorry I did not make it clear.

Back + shoulders would be a very heavy load IMO. I think sticking with one upper and one lower is a better option.

Jsut stick with the same weight until you can go up. If you can't do it every workout that's fine (and smaller muscle groups can be more difficult becuase the weight jumps are bigger as a percentage of maximum). But I don't see heavy/light being really consistent iwth the idea of specialization.

Ok, I thought about this some more and it might be workable. What I would NOT suggest is training both back and shoulders in the same workout.

So set up two different workouts perhaps

back (specialization), arms (maintenance), legs (maintenance)

delts (specialization), chest (maintenance), tris (maintenance), abs/etc (maintenance)

Maybe.
