5 x 5 and T-Nation 5/3/1 are both awesome programs that follow the same 5 lifts [squat, deadlift, bench, press, row] I personally prefer 5/3/1 with a hypertrophy set but really both are simple yet awesomely effective programs.

Yeah I think 5x5 overdoes the legs vs upper body. It’s a good base, but I’d add pullups and some direct arm training (curls and whatnot) to start and see how you progress

Sounds good. I’ve done 5x5 before too. Can squat and deadlift pretty well. Need to add more upper body strength. Will adjust this time around. Coming back to lifting after few months, had back pain and gave it a rest.

Get ready for a big ass and small arms, esp if you're gracile. Greyskull is a good mod for breaking plateaus.

Never heard of GreySkull. Looks cool. Will try it, more of a skinny fat build, but athletic, played sports regularly throughout life.
