    it would be a good choice, but nothing is that effective unless you pair it with proper eating. you want mass, you have to eat for it. read the thread in my sig on how to figure out how to eat.

    5x5 is a great program to start with, it will get you more strength then size but is excellent to get a good base. Diet is the most important thing, look into TDEE, macros, and how to count and track calories in the nutrition stickys. Good luck.

    Edit. Above was posted while typing so sorry for parroting lol
