If you have to ask, yes. I don't know how it can be stated any simpler than the article.

Numbers do not matter. Experience does not matter. Bodyweight does not matter. Percentages do not matter. The only thing that matters is whether you can add weight to the bar every damn time you train. That's it. You might crap out at 2.5BW squat or 1.0. It doesn't matter. It doesn't F'n matter.

Work up to a heavy set of 10 on squats. That's your 3x5. Since you're malnourished, just kick it up 5 pounds each time. That will drag it out a bit so your strength gains aren't limited by your emaciatedness. Reset one time and keep going. When you reset the second time, train 3 weeks on and 1 off. That will prolong your linear progression and get you used to the 531 cycles.
