I've been recommended your program through multiple people and I really like the look of simplicity and at the same time the difficulty of the lifts. Over the last month I have been progressively stressing and adapting my muscles to work loads (volume about the same as BBB), but didn't have a setup I could settle in to.
I'm a 6'1", 165 pound, 21-year-old looking to gain 20 lbs. over the next 6 months. I understand to gain size, I'm also going to need to get stronger an your program does that. I also understand that someone like me won't make a single gain if I'm not on top of my calorie intake. I plan on 4,000 calories (half coming in form of carbohydrates) and 250g of protein/day.
Which of your templates would you recommend for me?
Should I perform warm-up sets for the 5/3/1 lift of the day?
How should I increase intensity in both 5/3/1 and in the assistance work?
Any guidance would be awesome. Thanks man.
