    Both you mentioned are fine splits, The link you posted has a good point but summed up it just says to train with very high intensity which you should do. Any program you do just work as hard as you can each set while maintaining good form and don't over train, you'll get bigger.

    20 Rep Squats is a great program for adding mass. Just remember two key points:

    1. Don't go mad on accessory work.
    2. Eat for two people.

    I just put an article up on GetLifting about bulking so go take a look at it.

    getlifting.info ยป The 20 Rep Squat Program
    I've read that article before, but I've never tried it. I would love to see someone do it and document it in the journal section, so I change my vote to doing that.

    Go to your gym, find something heavy, pick it up, rinse & repeat.

    Looks fine. By the end of the program you will have dropped all the accessory work anyway. The last two weeks i just did my squats and went home, lol.

    Just make sure you're getting enough calories in, and don't sweat the accessory too much. Remember to superset the set of squats with light pullovers, too.

    It's been able to pack muscle on people pretty consistently for about 50 years at least, so even it's not the best its a pretty safe bet. I can't stress the eating enough though, really. If you don't eat enough not only will you not gain anything, but you'll probably quit half way through.

    3-4 big meals a day, and 6 pints of milk (at least) on top of that is pretty standard. You might want to buy some lactase enzyme tablets if you're not really tolerant to that much dairy.

    Don't choose a starting weight thats too heavy, either. You can always jump by adding extra weight if it's too light, but its a pisser for motivation doing it the other way around.

    Its a great program that i think everybody should do once for the perspective it gives you. Very little has phased me in training since the horror of those final few 20 rep sets.
