    But isn't 5/3/1 more of a strength based programme rather than a muscle building programme? i'm looking to gain mostly muscle but with some strength. prime focus is on building muscle. My position is kinda tricky to explain. i wouldn't say i am a beginner as i went gym for a year.
    You won't really gain much size on 5/3/1, for best results you want to be doing 8-12 reps with nice strict form in order to gain muscle.

    Yeah, hats the thing. I want to build mucsle. Hence why i was asking if i should follow all the exercises, omar mentions in his anatomy videos. Obv, i can't do all of them but i could do some. Just don't know how many to do for each part of the body section as mentioned in his video.

    For the natural, for the most part strength and size are directly linked

    I prob sound very picky but i just want something a lot of variety (not in the sense, crap loads of exercises).

    To be honest, you seem to know what you want to do. Do whatever you want to do tbh.

    I've said all I can.

    I don't like Chris Jones or his channels or content.

    I would recommend Layne Norton's PHAT. It is written by a professional natural bodybuilder who has a PhD. It gives the optimum balance between strength and feeling the muscles work for maximal hypertrophy. It us also varied for maximal muscle confusion in order to stop you hitting a plateau.

    Westside for Skinny *******s?

    I think it's ****, if westside methods have a place in raw lifting it's not with noobs/early intermediates but you'd probably like it OP, it has planned gym ADHD

    What are you going to do for inner and outer chest though? Don't neglect them or you'll develop an unbalanced physique.
    That's obvious innit, squeeze on contraction for inner chest gains.

    Not srs.
