Primer 52 Principles Applied to Best Damn Volume Plan

Hi CT

I’ve just started Best Damn Volume program (I’m on mass phase) and wondering what will be best damn way to incorporate Primer52 principles into it. Rep Range 8-12 in first block so there’s no strength days per se, only hypertrophy but Monday is somewhat harder (more compound exercises). Only way I can think of is following:

Sun - FAST
Mon – FBW (hard) => hypertrophy/high carbs/high protein/low fat (mTOR activation day)
Tue – short arm and neck workout (isolations only) => Adaptable Day (mTOR activation, slight calorie surplus?)
Wed – FBW (light) => hypertrophy/high carbs/high protein/low fat (mTOR activation day)
Thu - short arm and neck workout (isolations only) => Adaptable Day (mTOR activation, slight calorie surplus?)
Fri – LOWER (medium) => hypertrophy/high carbs/high protein/low fat (mTOR activation day)
Sat – UPPER (medium) => / hypertrophy/high carbs/high protein/low fat (mTOR activation day)

My goal is to gain weight very slowly (1 pound / 0,3 kg per week)
