Its been a long time since I’ve been here, anyway I’ve been doing the upper/lower split (J.V.askem) routine for along time with a very good results then I got bored and switched to the BB split routine which I didn’t like much and the gain was not as strong as the upper/lower one.
Now I want ur help in finding a good upper/lower workout routine that focus on hypertrophy.
So any suggestion guys ?
Thanks

Switch back to your previous upper/lower split routine and see if you can make any gains after being away from it for a while.

It would help if you listed the exercises, sets and reps of your routine and (optionally) the exercises, sets and reps of your split routine. Your age and lifting experience would be helpful, too.

I tried but I used to workout with it a lot, so now after a week of doing it, I get really bored.

plus I need more shoulder workout, coz i have pain in it while i do press, and i know that it's my week point.

I'm thinking of WS4SB the WASHED-UP MEATHEAD TEMPLATE :
MONDAY – Max-Effort Upper Body
WEDNESDAY – Max-Effort Lower Body
THURSDAY – Repetition Upper Body
SATURDAY – “Vanity” Day

if u workout with it what u do usally in the “Vanity” Day?

BTW I don’t mind any high volume workout as I have no difficulties doing them..

Cool. Follow the routine for 6-8 weeks, then take stock of your development. Try to change your routine because of slowing progress rather than boredom, though.
