Based on your routine, I think you'd transition to 5x5 full body very well.

Soldier is right...more than one day/week is better for serious strength and size.

Glutes are the biggest single muscle and legs are half your body weight (or should be).

I did years of body building and got some shape out of it but when I switched to a fullbody 5x5, squatting 2-3 times/week and deadlifting once (plus RDLs) I packed on the most mass in the least time and set all my personal bests in 3-4 months.

If you want both, break through strength barriers with basic moves...that's where the mass is.
