I wanted to know if 5/3/1 or an HIT routine would be an optimal workout plan for my goals. I want to bulk up and gain size (about 20 lbs of muscle) but not necessarily be “huge”.

As you can assume, I’m more long and lean and I wanted to put on muscle. I’ve done research and the two workout plans that I’d probably stay most consistent with would either be HIT or 5/3/1 but I didn’t know which one would be optimal for size gains. I’ve done a lot of study on nutrition and supplementation so I have a lot of that covered, just wanted some advice. I’ve seen some people recommend 5/3/1 for beginners to bulk but it just seems like a strength training program and doesn’t seem optimal for growth but I could definitely be wrong. I know some people may be against HIT but it works best for my schedule and preferences. Thanks for the help.
