I think both approaches are good if your goal is to get big and strong. Although there are a few different 55s, so it would be helpful to know which one(s) you are thinking about. Also how much experience do you have? Approx where are your lifts. 5/3/1 has a fixed progression which is great for the experienced intermediate lifter, but imo may be a bit reserved for the beginner to early intermediate lifter. Just my take.
