Question Beginner 45y need advices on programs please

Hello, I lifted since 1 year with little progress in muscle gain. I tried Fierce5 and 5-8 reps range isn't for me. I tried All Pro, 8-12 reps range is better on my joint so I was happy but I noticed full-body 3 times a week drains me. So I searched a good program for me that mimic fullbody...

Favorite 3 Day a Week S/B/D Program?

I'm looking for suggestions for a simple program that runs just a few days a week and uses limited exercises. Squat, Bench, Deadlift are a must. Something more strength focused would be perfect (read: lower reps). I'm terribly deconditioned currently, so something linear might be a great idea. ...
