I’ve been lifting for about a year and a half straight. I’ve had some on and off periods before that though. For most of my time lifting I’ve done a 4-day split of muscle groups changing exercises every so often. I just completed my first week on 5/3/1.

These are the stats I used to calculate my 1RM for 5/3/1
Benchpress 3 reps at 225
Squat 10 reps at 135
Deadlift 4 reps at 245
Overhead Press 4 reps at 105
Note: my squat is low because I wanted to essentially restart my squat on the 5/3/1 program. I can/could do more though.
I’ve been reading more into 5/3/1 and it seems that its better for advanced lifters that no longer can progress. So what I’m asking is, should I switch to a different program? Possibly HST? Or is it legit to stay on 5/3/1?
Oh, and my goal is to gain more mass. My diet is in check, I just want to make sure the routine is too.
