Your post wasn’t the cause for an argument, my disagreement over Furius’ statement was.
I wouldn’t choose the program you linked, but I don’t think it would be a disaster for you to run either. If I had to make a specific recommendation based on your rather broad goals it would be to buy Mr. Jim Wendler’s 5/3/1 book. Read it, understand it and follow one of his proven templates. Absorb and apply the principals espoused by Wendler, they will serve you very well if you intend to stay in the game long enough to really change how you look and/or perform.
In fact, I’ve been asking myself why I’ve been winging it for the last few months instead of just running 5/3/1. I don’t really have a good answer for myself there.
But yes, the strength portion of 5/3/1 is basically a varying set/rep scheme for the big four lifts plus whatever else you want and/or need to do. It pairs very well with hypertrophy work. It sounds like it has the elements you are seeking in a training program.
Don’t confuse it with “30 Day Shortcut to Massive Biceps” type programs though. Think of it as a sensible foundation of lifting principles for a person who is serious about strength and realistic about the timelines involved with the pursuit.
5/3/1 isn’t some Holy Grail though. If you believe in the program you picked and want to run it, I say do it and see where you get with it.
Edit: @poseidon10 One more thought I wanted to add is to find a way to lift that you enjoy. Learn to love what you do or, if you can’t manage that, learn to love what it does for you. If you do, lifting will just become a normal part of your life that you make sure to do, kinda like flossing, and something that you strive to improve at, kinda like fucking.
For my first two years I lifted with a father/son pair who busted their asses on their home-made isolation six day bro-split with almost no compounds. They were both really jacked (above the waist, at least) and couldn’t have given two flying fucks what their squat or deadlift is. I miss lifting with them.
Almost everything works if you do.
