@Big TT dont know nothin about fitness

Easily the fittest on this site...you are all fatboi's
You should make a spicy burrito at the restaurant and call it the “jalapeño ass”
Like all up in yo ass
I've done variations of that program. Definitely start light. Embarrassingly light. The weight will get tough in no time. Main thing with linear progressions like this is don't start sacrificing form just for the sake of adding the weight each session. Better to squat 225 ass to grass and controlled than squat 315 all sloppy and not breaking parallel.
The thing I found I really didn't like about these 3x a week full body programs is.... squatting/deadlifting first thing every workout will REALLY start negatively impacting your other lifts like bench/rows once you get up into heavy weights that are tough for you. You're gonna feel dead after squats alone then have to try to progress on bench and whatnot lol. It gets brutal. And let's be honest, most of us would rather have big pecs and back and okay legs than vice versa.
Those programs are great for getting strength up in a relatively short amount of time. But once you start getting burned out and you're not really progressing in anything that isn't legs, I'd move on to something else that is more split up over more days. I've kinda landed on Upper/Lower programs (2 upper days and 2 lower days) at this point in my life. It's the perfect amount of recovery for me and it fits my schedule....... Plus you can always sneak in extra work for the vanity muscles on lower days lol.
I mainly want to do the program to get my squat strength up. I’ve never had strong legs and I haven’t been doing any legs for about 4 months. I don’t see doing this more than 8-12 weeks to get strength up then I’d probably do some other routine. I’m also a bit concerned my knee won’t hold up doing 3 days of squats every week.
All the more reason to start absurdly light. Also, you could always follow the same 5x5 scheme and progression but with a different split. Like you could do 5x5 as an upper/lower. It'd just be 2x/week frequency instead of 3. Not really a big deal in the grand scheme of things though.
