How to get big as intermediate:

1. Lift the thing
2. Lower the thing
3. Repeat 5-15 times
4. Do again in 3-5 days
5. Add weight to the thing
6. Go to 1

Not really. I'll do it for a month to six weeks when losing weight in a very sizeable deficit as it seems decent for that but going forward I am going to do something much higher volume when not dieting for sure.
I didn't progress beyond my current numbers on RPT in the past so I won't be doing it again as a bulking routine but yeah I was curious what people thought. Kill me :-)

Has anyone in this thread even looked at the link OP gave?

It ticks all the boxes in terms of volume, intensity and frequency - 6 sets of bench, 3 for OHP, 6 for squats, 2 for DL, 6 sets of rows and 3 sets of chins. So while not overly voluminous, the intensity compensates for that. Training to failure is done in higher rep ranges (8+), which doesn't burn you out as much and is required to activate all muscle fibers.

So the bulking version has around 8 sets for legs, 9 for push, 9 for pull per week. I don't see a reason why it couldn't work, especially if the sets are close to failure.

Maybe add some extra hamstring work for squat day and some leg work in general, otherwise it's a decent set-up. Or you could just keep it away from failure and add some more volume to compensate, doesn't really make a difference.

You just have to run a program for a while, note your experiences and modify it according to your needs as you progress further. Which probably means higher volumes over time, especially for lagging body parts.

No, Roger, of course not. Nobody here has any clue what Martikn's magic reverse pyramid training is. Nobody.
