The way your program is structured right now is good and 3x frequency is def enough for hypertrophy purposes.
Increasing frequency is just one tool and it can be very effective for some purposes, like technique improvement.
Yeah I'm pretty leery of jumping in too deep at once so I'll keep at it with 2x a week and see what happens.

If you are at the point where u know the lifts and what your strengths/weaknesses are that might be a good approach. No sense wasting time blasting parts that grow with minimal help.
I've got a pretty long way to go imho. Just need to see how elbows feel next week. I have a feeling my quads will jump in and I honestly think the fs feels solid due to my hex bar work.
I'm hoping to get up to a 3 plate dead and 2 plate squat for 5 reps. Bench will be harder i think, but I'm hoping to do 100dbs for 10 reps. Doubt ill jump to a 3 plate bench, but I'm hoping to be able to hit 275 or so for 5. It's going to be a long while though.
Hoping to hit all these by the time i leave work in June. I still have lots of noob gains left in me i think. Esp for squat.
