Need advise to help my brother

I'm 19 and have been lifting a few years. My brother is 21, and has always been very skinny with a fast metabolism. He has always come to me for advise but has never really committed.

How does my 5/3/1 split look?

I'm 19 and nearing the end of my cut, and just started 5/3/1. I plan to do 5/3/1 for a few months at least. My goal currently is to regain strength and get some compound movement gains, since I honestly haven't been going as hard as I should be in the gym, all while doing some isolation movements....

pyramiding vs straight sets

which is better for strength? for example 5 sets of 3 reps at 100kg or pyramiding up the weight to a 1 set of 3 reps (60 x 1 x 3, 80 x 1 x 3, 100 x 1 x 3, 110 x 1 x 3)? cheers

When doing assistant exercises, say db bench press for example, should you be trying to get stronger on that exercise or just focus on using correct form and getting a pump with around 10 reps? thanks

I grasp the idea of force couples and how weak glutes/hammies/lower abs combined with stronger quads and lower back may contribute to the situation. My raw dead and squat are exactly equal # wise so I suspect the weak...
