What is does your current routine look like?
If you are doing a lot of assistance moves/volume now, you might need to reduce some of that if you switch (depending on your work capacity).
Also, is your primary goal pure strength in the SQ, DL, BP, MP or are you less concerned about weights lifted and focused more on pure bodybuilding?
