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?

Monday: Chest,Triceps and Shoulders.
.Flat bench-5x5
.Incline bench-5x5
.Dips-5x5
.Military press-5x5

Tuesday- day off

Wednesday- Legs
.Barbell squat-5x5
.Plyometric jump squats-4 sets until failiure
.Bulgarian split squats- 3x5

Thursday- day off

Friday- back and biceps
.Deadlift- 5x5
.Chin ups or bicep curls- 5x5
.Bent over rows - 5x5
.Lat pull downs or pull ups- 5x5

Saturday- day off

Then start over on sunday.

To be honest my goal is both. Be strong and big
